The Patuxent River Policy Plan represents the shared commitment of state agencies and the seven counties and municipalities in the Patuxent River Watershed to protect and enhance this natural resource. The PRC relies on a policy plan to monitor the efforts of local jurisdictions, state agencies and community representatives in their work to restore the river.
The 2015 policy plan was adopted on May 14, 2014 by the commission and later in 2014 by the elected bodies of the eight local governments represented on the commission.
