Stoney Creek Pond Project

The Stoney Creek Pond is a joint project of the NIH and the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection.  The Pond will help control stormwater flows and filter and remove contaminants from runoff originating in the downtown Bethesda business district.  The pond will help manage the amount of water discharges into storm drains and streams surrounding the NIH community from buildings, roads, and parking lots.  Rapidly flowing water can erode stream banks, eventually causing property damage and harming the local ecosystem and, over time, the Chesapeake Bay.
