Baltimore and Elkridge on the Patapsco[edit]

I revised the list because it was a little misleading. Baltimore lies on the tidal Patapsco, but the Patapsco actually crosses the Fall Line SW of the city, at Elkridge. Elkridge Landing was once an important head of navigation until siltation raised the river bed, forcing shipping downstream to Baltimore. The small streams that cross the Fall Line within Baltimore were more important for water power than for navigation.--Bardobro (talk) 18:30, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
