BERLIN, Md.- The Town of Berlin has received a grant from the Chesapeake Bay Trust for $75,000 to construct a submerged gravel wetland to help address flooding in the area around Graham Avenue and Grice Street, Mayor Gee Williams announced Friday.

The town partnered with Maryland Coastal Bays to put the grant application together.  MCB will take the lead on the public outreach component of the project.

The grant provides funding for public outreach and community engagement around stormwater issues as well as the construction of a submerged gravel wetland on property the Town owns between Graham Avenue and Old Ocean City Boulevard.

“Berlin is known as a leader in local government stormwater management in Maryland,” said Town Administrator Laura Allen.  “We were unsuccessful with the first round of grants we submitted earlier this year.  It just goes to show how persistence and partnerships pay off,” she added.

The project is expected to be completed by Sept. 1, 2019.
