Wicomico Creek is located within Somerset and Wicomico Counties, Maryland and is bisected by the Counties' border. Its headwaters originate at the impoundment spillage of Allen Pond, which is fed by Passerby Creek and Barkley Branch. It finally drains to the Chesapeake Bay through the Wicomico River. The creek is approximately seven miles (11.2 km) in length.
Wicomico Creek (02130303) was identified on the State’s 1996 list of water quality limited segments (WQLSs) as impaired by nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus) and suspended sediment. The report available below establishes two TMDLs for Wicomico Creek: one for nitrogen and one for phosphorus. The suspended sediment impairment will be addressed separately.
