County and state officials will launch a project demonstrating stormwater management options for county property owners Wednesday morning.

The "tap-opening ceremony" will show how property owners can use captured rainwater to feed gardens on their property, according to a news release. The project was completed with the Office of Sustainability and Environmental Resources, the University of Maryland Extension Services and the county's Master Gardener Program.

It will be performed at 330 Montevue Lane in Frederick, and there will be educational opportunities for those who want to create similar projects. The county received $40,000 through a Maryland Chesapeake and Atlantic Coastal Bay Trust Fund to help with the project.

For more information, call Project Manager Don Dorsey at 301-600-2952.
