Water Quality Analysis with EPA Concurrence of MDE's Findings: Casselman River

The Casselman River is located in Garrett County, Maryland, just west of the Eastern Continental Divide. The Casselman River flows north, and lies within the Monongahela River watershed, a part of the Ohio drainage basin. The river is approximately 20 miles in length from the headwaters in the North Branch to the Maryland/Pennsylvania line. The Casselman River watershed has an area of approximately 66 miles2 or 42,375 acres.

The Casselman River was first identified on the 1996 303(d) list, submitted to EPA by the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE). Among other substances still under examination, the Casselman River was listed as being impaired by nutrients. The document available below provides more recent information that supports the removal of the nutrients listing for the Casselman River when the 303(d) list is revised in 2002.
