Approximately two thirds of the District is served by a municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4). In this area, rainwater washes trash, dirt, drips from cars, and bacteria from pet waste straight to the nearest creek. The remaining third of the District is served by a combined sewer system, which carries rainwater and sewage to the Blue Plains treatment plant. During heavy rains, the combined sewers overflow (CSO), sending raw sewage into Rock Creek. To learn what watershed you live in and whether you live in the MS4 or combined sewer (CSO) area, visit the Watershed Map.
The Chesapeake Bay FieldScope Project is a "citizen science" initiative in which students investigate water quality issues on local and regional levels and collaborate with students across the Bay to analyze data and take action. This is a project of National Geographic's Education Programs in collaboration with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office.
