Stream "Restoration" Projects

BACKGROUND:  Baltimore City's Department of Public Works (DPW) notified FOGFLP that they plan to remove another 200-300 mature trees in order to re-engineer three natural streams in the park so that they can absorb more storm-water.  FOGFLP opposes two of these projects on the grounds that they will require the creation of access roads through pristine forest and will not meaningfully reduce pollution in the Chesapeake Bay.  See our detailed page devoted to Stream Restoration.

    In an article about the pitfalls and impacts of "stream restoration," the Bay Journal mentions projects currently under consideration for Gwynns Falls/Leakin Park.   Please read!

    DPW has proposed to reconstruct stream beds of three tributaries to Dead Run.  FOGFLP has reviewed these plans and we have submitted written opposition to these projects.  Read our letter to DPW.   Also read our letter to membership summarizing the issue.  

Where is the park? 

On the western edge of Baltimore, right where Interstate 70 terminates.
