Glenmont Forest Green Streets Project

The Glenmont Forest Green Streets project was completed by the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection to reduce stormwater runoff and pollutant loading to the receiving stream and to help meet the County’s MS4 permit and TMDL requirements. This innovative green streets project installed ESD stormwater management facilities along residential streets throughout the Glenmont Forest and Wheaton Hills neighborhoods, within the existing public right-of-way. Working with a dedicated community and local nonprofits, Montgomery County DEP completed this retrofit to add ESD stormwater facilities within a developed urban environment with minimal existing stormwater infrastructure to provide water quality improvement and enhance neighborhood aesthetics.
