DNR Sets Work Session On Lake Habeeb, Others

November 11th, 2018 by WCBC Radio

The Maryland Department of Natural Resourceswill host five open house events to solicit public input to help develop a work plan for the new State Lakes Protection and Restoration Fund, which will provide $1 million for each of the next three years to improve state-owned lakes.

The department will develop a budget for best use of these funds in coordination with local governments, organizations and citizens. 

The funds can be used for removing sediment, treating contaminated sediment, preventing the spread of invasive species, improving ecological and recreational value and any other action the department deems necessary at any or all of 16 lakes throughout Maryland.

The public is invited to join staff to provide direct input on the following lakes at their corresponding meeting locations, between 2 and 6 p.m.:

Deep Creek Lake, Herrington Lake, Lake Habeeb (Rocky Gap State Park), New Germany Lake, Savage River Reservoir – Nov. 29 at New Germany State Park Lakehouse, McAndrews Hill Road, Grantsville

Updates and additional information will be posted on the department’s website at

Anyone who cannot attend an open house, but wishes to provide feedback should contact Mike Naylor at
