Greetings loyal Headwaters’ readers,

Never in our wildest dreams did we think that when we sent out our last issue this past February that we would face a global pandemic, lock-downs, and the complete upheaval of our daily lives. Well, with the launch of this issue of Headwaters, we’d like to think that we are taking yet another small step to get back on track on that journey towards a return to a more normal way of life.

In this issue, you’ll find some great information about how to deal with stormwater problems coming from your neighbor’s property, you can read about Contaminants of Emerging Concern, you will find out what stormwater art is all about, learn about one of Maryland’s new pests, how plants work like stormwater pumps, and that even though you rent an apartment, house, or condo, there are things you can do to improve stormwater runoff in your neighborhood.

As always, if you are interested in more information about a particular topic or about our program, we’d love to hear from you, so please don’t hesitate to contact us.
