Restoration Projects



The first three tributaries selected for large-scale restoration in Maryland are part of the Choptank River Complex on Maryland’s eastern shore. The Choptank River’s headwaters are in Delaware, and it is the longest river on the Delmarva Peninsula. Many residents in the area are employed in agricultural fields or as commercial fishermen. More information on Choptank River Complex work can be found here.
