Bishopville Pond Project Complete

After more than a year of work and a decade of planning, the Bishopville pond project is now complete. The pond, before restoration, had a spill way that prevented fish from the St. Martin’s River reaching and spawning upstream. Now, with the spill way gone and “fish ladders” installed, fish and eels can swim further upstream, spawn, and return to the river. Maryland Coastal Bays and Maryland Department of Natural Resources played a major part in making the new pond come to completion. Members of the Bishopville community, DNR, and Maryland Coastal Bays helped celebrate the ribbon cutting conducted by Worcester County Commissioner Jim Bunting and Senator Jim Mathias.
