About Lower Beaverdam Creek…
Lower Beaverdam Creek is a direct, principally free-flowing, tributary of the tidal Anacostia River. It joins the tidal river immediately downstream from the District of Columbia-Maryland border, adjacent to Kenilworth Marsh. The Lower Beaverdam Creek subwatershed is roughly outlined by Annapolis Road to the north and northeast, Mill Road to the southeast and east, I-95 to the east, and Rollins Avenue and the District line to the west. Ninety-nine percent of the subwatershed is in Prince George’s County, with the remaining one percent in the District of Columbia.
