  • Harassment
  • Other issues affecting our Maryland students

There is a good bit of discussion regarding the water levels of Deep Creek Lake. The Yough relies on releases for thriving wildlife and recreation. But, if lake levels drop too low, some Deep Creek Lake docks get trapped by dry land. A public informational hearing has been scheduled on October 15, 2019 at 3:00 PM, at the Auditorium of Garrett College to discuss the renewal of the Brookfield Renewable permit to operate the dam.
