Laurel, Md. – March 13, 2023 – Longer days mean more time to enjoy the great outdoors on WSSC Water’s Patuxent Watershed starting this week. All recreation areas will open at sunrise on Wednesday, March 15, for all permitted activities, including boating, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, and picnicking. 

WSSC Water’s Patuxent River Watershed Recreational Areas span over 4,000 acres along its two reservoirs, Triadelphia and T. Howard Duckett, in Montgomery, Prince George’s and Howard counties. The reservoirs serve as drinking water sources for WSSC Water.

The 2023 season also introduces the WSSC WATERshed app to help visitors plan and take full advantage of all recreational areas. The app provides details on each area, including interactive maps and pictures to help find amenities like shoreline fishing and picnic areas, playgrounds, boat launches and bathrooms. Maps are also available to download to your phone for  use when cellular service is weak or unavailable. The free app is available on the Apple Store and Google Play.

All visitors of the watershed who are 16 years or older must have a valid permit, which can be purchased online at wsscwater.com/watershed or in person at the Brighton Dam Visitor Center, located at 2 Brighton Dam Road, Brookville, Maryland 20833. 

Complimentary permits are available for visitors 65 or older, active military and disabled veterans.
