The demise of a large triple-trunk poplar in her backyard 18 years ago created the opportunity for Diana Curran to build her water garden retreat. "It was my husband's idea," says Curran, a dance teacher at Bryn Mawr School. "He said, 'Why don't we get a pond?'" They started with a hole and a mound of dirt. A contractor graded the earth and helped build a stone wall around the pond. Once the pond was filled, Curran began planting around it. She started with unmarked plants she bought at an auction and spent two seasons figuring out what she had purchased.

Howard County's Watershed Protection and Restoration Program is launching a project to repair a stormwater pond on Old Mill Road in the vicinity of Millwick Drive in Ellicott City. The project will include replacement of the pond's metal principal spillway with a new concrete spillway. Last year, the County Council approved a Watershed Protection and Restoration Plan that is expected to collect $9.5 million annually for improvement projects. The money will be used for stream restorations, pond retrofits, bioretention areas, asphalt reduction and other projects to meet a federally required target of making sure that 20 percent of the county's untreated impervious surface is being treated by 2019.

While a state Department of Natural Resources truck stood by yesterday with an oxygenated tub to haul away whatever crappie, catfish, carp and bluegill survived, locals strolled by to watch the water drop by nearly imperceptible degrees.
