When old stormwater ponds are not maintained, they can become eyesores that function below capacity. To address this issue, the Prince George’s County Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) began the Stormwater Pond Retrofit and Beautification program. The program offers planting and site design, amenities where appropriate, and implementation of designed elements.

The Neighborhood Design Center supports DPW&T’s initiative by providing design and community engagement services to Homeowner’s Associations that apply to the County for assistance. These often over-looked landscapes have potential to become much-needed green space and community amenities.
