Mayor Craig A. Moe invites the public to this weekend’s Riverfront Park Clean Up, where he will unveil the newest tool in the City of Laurel’s toolbox for flood mitigation.

The City will take the wraps off a sign that shows how high the water got during Hurricane Agnes in 1972.  Any guesses?

That high water mark is valuable information for engineers to assess the risk of flooding in our City, especially in areas near the River, and establish ways to mitigate it.

The unveiling of the High Water Mark will take place at 9:00am this Saturday, April 6th, at Riverfront Park near the pavilions at the end of Avondale Street. If you are unable to attend, then be sure to tune into our City’s Facebook page, City of Laurel – Government, where we will bring you the unveiling Live!

After the unveiling, you’re invited to stay and participate in our Annual Clean Up along the Patuxent. We’ll bring the supplies.

If you have any questions, please call the Office of the Mayor at 301-725-5300 ext. 2125.
