Arrowhead Cove Pilot Dredging Project: Notice of Intent to Proceed

Garrett County Government and Maryland Environmental Service (MES) have announced a Notice of Intent to Proceed with Byco Enterprises for the Arrowhead Cove Pilot Dredging project. Arrowhead Cove, at Deep Creek Lake, is selected as a priority area for a pilot dredging project to remove accumulated sediment from the lakebed.

“We are thrilled to see this project begin to take shape,” stated Bruce Michael, Garrett County Watershed Coordinator. “This project will evaluate the pros and cons of dredging within Deep Creek Lake and determine if dredging other sediment-impacted Deep Creek Lake coves is a viable and cost-effective strategy for improving water recreation, water quality, and fish habitat.”

The dredging project at Arrowhead Cove represents a significant investment in the environmental health and future of Deep Creek Lake. Garrett County is committed to preserving the natural beauty and recreational opportunities of this community asset.
