The Choptank Watershed

In Maryland, the Choptank Watershed covers approximately 700 square miles including portions of Caroline, Talbot, Dorchester, and Queen Anne's County. The predominant land use in the watershed are agriculture and forest, with growing urban areas in the Towns of Cambridge, Easton, Denton, and Trappe. The Choptank Trib Team contends with a wide range of water quality issues such as non-point agricultural runoff to failing and inefficient residential septic systems, as well as fisheries and habitat concerns.
