A study was conducted for the Baltimore County, Maryland, Department of Enviromnental Protection, to assess the watershed conditions and stream channel stability of Stemmer's Run and its tributaries, from its downstream boundary of Double Rock Park to its headwaters. Alternatives were developed for in-stream restoration measures, watershed restoration measures, park management and trail relocations within the 305 hectares watershed draining to the park boundary. Preliminary cost estimates were developed for the watershed restoration measures that were considered feasible as well as for the in-stream restoration measures.
