26. New Windsor Middle School


The New Windsor Middle School site is a 3 acre (1 acre forested, 1 acre scrub-shrub, 1 acre emergent) wetland created from a landscape management area.  It is located in the Middle Potomac River – Double Pipe Creek (02-14-03-04) watershed of Carroll County. 



The Maryland Department of the Environment, Department of Natural Resources, and the school cooperated to construct and plant this site in Summer/Fall 1999.        


Some portions of this site are too dry.  For this reason, using the newly developed Mitigation Site Scoring Method, MDE gave this site a score of 73/100.  This site still provides some valuable wetland functions, including furnishing organic matter to the aquatic food web, water quality improvement, wildlife habitat, and educational/aesthetic qualities.
