24. Federalsburg Phase II


The Federalsburg - Phase II site is a 6 acre (3 acres scrub-shrub, 3 acres emergent) combination of tidal/nontidal wetland.  It is located within the Nanticoke River Area - Marshyhope Creek (02-13-03-06) watershed of Caroline County, next to the Federalsburg Phase I wetland mitigation site.    



In the summer of 1999, the Maryland Department of the Environment, Town of Federalsburg, Department of Natural Resources, and the National Guard cooperated to convert a landscape management area/floodplain/former mine area into a tidally influenced wetland.        


While this site has more open water than planned, this site has established into a successful wetland system.  When MDE scored this site in 2009 using the newly developed Mitigation Site Scoring Method, the site received the score of 72/100.  The vegetated areas are extremely diverse.  The site provides some valuable wetland functions including water quality improvement, recreation, education, aesthetic value, and wildlife habitat. 

This site is open to the public. Click here to view an aerial photo and directions.
