Third Cecil County Watershed Stewards Academy Applications Due September 16
The Cecil County Watershed Stewards Academy (WSA) is accepting applications for classes to be held this fall. The program is a partnership with the Cecil County Department of Public Works-Development Services Division and the University of Maryland Sea Grant Extension. The WSA program trains adult community leaders in ways to reduce polluted stormwater runoff, improve local water quality. Participants will complete an intensive 16-course training program consisting of classroom and hands-on field work, a class project, and an individual capstone project in their community.
Once trained, participants achieve the designation of Master Watershed Steward and work with other members of their communities to assess watersheds to help identify sources of pollution and restoration opportunities, educate their community on pollution sources and how to reduce them, implement small-scale stormwater management practices such as installing rain barrels or constructing rain gardens, inspect and/or maintain small-scale stormwater management Best Management Practices (BMP), and connect communities with environmental resources and people who can help restore watersheds.
For additional information please visit http://www.ccgov.org/news/wsa16applications.cfm to learn more about the program and download the application and reference form. If you have any questions, please contact Eric Buehl (firstname.lastname@example.org) with University of Maryland Sea Grant Extension or Marshall McSorley (email@example.com) of the Cecil County Department of Public Works Development Services Division.
Applications and reference forms are due to Eric Buehl by 5:00 p.m., Friday, September 16, 2016.

Public Can Access Live MD 213 Traffic Conditions on Web and Mobile Devices
The Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) has installed two temporary traffic cameras along MD 213 (Augustine Herman Highway) near the Chesapeake City Bridge over the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal in Cecil County. The temporary cameras provide 24/7 live stream of traffic conditions and can help commuters and emergency responders plan their routes during the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ bridge painting project.
Each day an average of 15,000 vehicles cross the Chesapeake City Bridge, which is owned and maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. For more information on the Corps’ bridge painting project see http://www.nap.usace.army.mil/Media/News-Releases/Article/780921/army-corps-to-commence-repair-on-chesapeake-city-bridge/.
While SHA and its transportation partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, each driver needs to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes. Stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Slow down and don’t follow too closely. Work Zone Safety is in Your Hands.
A complete listing of current SHA projects is included in e-Road Ready 2016, the online brochure. Maryland drivers can also know before they go by calling 511 or visiting www.md511.org for live traffic updates, including construction delays and lane closures.
