47. Puckum Branch I


The Puckum Branch I project includes the restoration of a 17 acre floodplain/wetlands system from an area of land that had become disconnected forested floodplain with incised stream channel.  This site is located within the Nanticoke River - Marshyhope Creek   (02-13-03-06) watershed of Dorchester County. 


In cooperation with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, the Maryland Department of the Environment constructed this site in Fall 2004.                 


Since then it has established into a successful wetland system and provides valuable wetland and floodplain functions to the landscape.  While this site is on DNR owned land, access may be restricted.  Click here to see an aerial photo and location information.
