The Field Trip was held on October 1, 2015 at the Upper Little Patuxent River Stream Restoration site on Carrigan Drive in Ellicott City, MD 21042. The Upper Little Patuxent River Stream Restoration project represented MSHA’s first-ever design-build (DB) stream restoration to specifically address the Chesapeake Bay Total Daily Maximum Load (TMDL).  The project restored approximately 3,200 feet of the main stem and 600 feet of an unnamed tributary.  The project provided a cost effective and stable solution utilizing stream and floodplain restoration to meet NPDES, MS4 and TMDL reductions for total nitrogen (TN), total phosphorus and sediment (TSS).  JMT was the lead designer for the Ecotone / JMT DB Team. We had 40 attendees. Following the field trip, we convened at the Stained Glass Pub in Elkridge for drinks and appetizers.
