Hashawha Environmental Center (Phase II)

11. Hashawha Environmental Center (Phase II)

Introduction

The Hashawha Environmental Center (Phase II) site was designed to be a 0.75 acre forested wetland created in a previously grassed floodplain. It is located in the Middle Potomac River - Double Pipe Creek (02-14-03-04) watershed of Carroll County, in very close proximity to Hashawha Environmental Center (Phase I) wetland mitigation.


Construction

Records show that this site was constructed and planted in fall 1994/spring 1995 by Nontidal Wetlands and Waterways Division and Carroll County Soil Conservation District. However, there was no evidence of a wetland creation during the recent site visits.
