Pond Clean Up 3.jpg

Schoolhouse Pond Clean-Up

 

This project is being completed to meet regulatory requirements for treating stormwater within Prince George’s County. The Clean Water Partnership (CWP) program will install, upgrade, and maintain three forebays and an outfall. The forebays will capture excess sediment and other pollutants prior to releasing storm water into the pond site, as well as provide better drainage to the outfall structure. Pedestrian access to the trail path will be restricted during construction. The Upper Marlboro Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) adopted the Schoolhouse Pond and performs semi-annual clean-ups.

Dog Waste Stations

 

The town of Upper Marlboro has installed 15 dog waste stations, including 5 provided by the Sustainable Maryland program via funding from the Prince George's County Department of the Environment. These stations help keep the community grounds and waterways clean while also reducing harmful greenhouse gasses. For more information on the importance of cleaning up after your pet, check out our brochure (English, Spanish). Learn more about the program and find the map of stations here.

Storm Drain Marking

 

Our Town Public Work crews have painted and stenciled storm drains around town. This project serves a dual purpose as both beautifying the previously rusty storm drains, while also reminding the public that all storm drains eventuality lead to the Chesapeake Bay and any trash or fluids deposited in our roadways can end up in the Bay. The stencils are on loan from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Storm Drain Stenciling Program. If you're interested in stenciling storm drains in your community, visit their website here.

New Town Hall

 

The Upper Marlboro Town Hall & Police Department was renovated and expanded in 2017. The new Town Hall features LED lighting, timed light sensors, natural lights via sky tunnels, low-flow water appliances, and an energy-efficient HVAC unit.
