The Surf Your Watershed project is a cooperative effort involving the
Maryland Departments of the Environment and Natural Resources to
"catalog" important environmental, socioeconomic, and programmatic
information on a watershed basis. The project provides a
database in which natural resources and biological information
(including hydrologic, hydraulic, and water quality); bibliographic
references; contacts, programs and activity descriptions; and other data
can coexist and be easily obtained for watershed management, planning,
and natural resource conservation programs and projects.
- A compilation of a wide variety of mapped environmental data, framed
as indicators of environmental conditions in Maryland, and the stresses
imposed by human activity on natural values.
- Provides profiles of a watershed's geography, ecosystem condition,
industry, planning resources and watershed management activities.
- Lists documents coded to Maryland's 8-digit watersheds that are held
at the Information Resource Center (IRC) at the Maryland Department
of Natural Resources (DNR) and at the Maryland Department of the
Watershed Planning & Strategies: Conservation, Restoration, and Monitoring Projects
