Staff quoted: Andrew Elmore
Article Link Permanent Link

Before there was a capital city on the Potomac or a port in Baltimore; before the Beltways, the suburbs, the strip malls and subdivisions, there were streams – a lot of them, apparently. Recently, scientists from the University of Maryland's Center for Environmental Science developed high resolution maps that identify headwater channels throughout the Potomac River watershed that were overlooked previously, or are now buried under modern development. They estimate that previous maps of the Potomac and surrounding watersheds underrepresent natural stream density by up to 250 percent.
