Howard County Watershed Stewards Academy

The Howard County Watershed Stewards Academy is a training program to empower residents to improve the water quality of local streams. Stewards become community leaders in reducing harmful effects of polluted storm water running off into our streams.

The Academy provides Stewards knowledge and expertise from lecturers, training in using watershed assessment tools for analyzing storm water runoff and hands-on experience installing a solution to a stormwater management problem.  A consortium of experienced stormwater management practitioners will provide Stewards with on-going support for their community projects.

Howard County WSA provides property owners with assessments that help them correct erosion problems and storm water damage. They also work with Homeowners Associations, Condominium Associations, Schools, Scouts, Businesses and Non-Profit Organizations to inform and help them prevent pollution.
