News Release - Chesapeake Bay Grant for Storm Drain Marking

The Mayor and Board of Commissioners are pleased to announce that the Town has been chosen to receive a grant in the amount of $3,000.00 as part of the Chesapeake Bay Trust’s Community Engagement Mini Grant program. 

The grant funding will be used to purchase supplies in order to start a storm drain-marking program.  The purpose of the program is to raise public awareness that storm drains directly or indirectly connect to local water bodies that ultimately lead to the Chesapeake Bay.  Our hope is that the storm drain-marking program will discourage the dumping of materials down storm drains, which will prevent pollution and improve water quality.

We thank the Chesapeake Bay Trust for their generous contribution to our Town!

Please contact the Zach Gulden, Town Planner, at 301-600-6309 or by email at zgulden@emmitsburgmd.gov if you have any questions or wish to volunteer to install storm drain markers throughout the Town.
