Smith to mark stream restoration project


Baltimore County Executive Jim Smith and other officials plan to celebrate the completion of a stream restoration project for Minebank Run -- a Gunpowder Falls tributary that leads to the Chesapeake Bay -- on Tuesday morning at Cromwell Valley Park.

The Baltimore County Department of Environmental Protection and Resource Management completed the $3.1 million project hoping to restore the banks of the local tributary, which has a history of major erosion and flooding problems, according to officials.

The department planted more than 2,000 trees and 4,000 shrubs to restore the stream buffer and to improve water quality and wildlife habitat through flood prevention, Smith's office said.
