ShoreRivers, an advocacy organisation protecting and restoring Maryland’s eastern shore, received a $10,000 grant from the Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation. 

ShoreRivers works with farmers on Delmarva to implement conservation drainage projects and demonstration projects that showcase the environmental and agricultural benefits. Using the funding from Perdue Foundation, ShoreRivers has installed two projects in Dorchester and Somerset counties.

In total, ShoreRivers will install seven conservation drainage projects on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Delaware. Specific practices being installed are blind inlets, saturated buffers, water control structures and new drainage tile designs for use with a drainage water management plan. | READ MORE
