Maps of Watershed

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Herring Bay is a 3,145 acre body of water that includes Rockhold, Tracy, and Parker creeks on the north and Rose Haven Harbor on the south. Herring Bay has been designated as one of two "no discharge" zones in the State of Maryland because of its ecological value and intenstive use by boaters. Our watershed covers the approximately 25-square mile area that drains into Herring Bay.
