Log Description

This is Croydon Creek which runs through Rockville's Civic Center Park near Croydon Creek Nature Center. This historic area was part of the Shapiro Tract which was donated for use as a park and it now is part of the Hayes Forest Preserve. In recent years this site has undergone some changes related to WSSC's SR3 program to shore up the streambank and repair existing sewer lines. We hope to monitor the changes to the creek after large storm events to see how streamflow changes the physical apprearance of the creek bed.
