The Cecil County Watershed Stewards Academy (WSA) is a partnership with the Cecil County Department of Public Works-Stormwater Management Division and the University of Maryland Sea Grant Extension. The WSA program trains adult community leaders in ways to reduce polluted stormwater runoff and 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.

If you would like to learn more about the program or if you have any questions, please contact Marshall McSorley of the Cecil County Department of Public Works-Stormwater Management Division or Eric Buehl with University of Maryland Sea Grant Extension.
