MRC conducts watershed assessments of its various tributaries, analyzing water quality, identifying major sources of pollution, developing measures to reduce or eliminate those sources, and identifying funding sources to implement those measures. We have conducted such assessments of the upper Choptank, the Tanyard Branch which runs through Easton and into the Tred Avon River, and we recently received funding to complete a comprehensive assessment of the Wye River.
