Tributary list[edit]

I added tributaries in DC & MD using several sources, including USGS, DDOE, & Montgomery Co. I may have missed a few small tribs, especially in Md. I would appreciate someone checking this, including whether they are in the correct sequence. Moreau1 06:04, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Water quality[edit]

I added a paragraph on water quality & stream restoration projects in Montgomery Co. A similar discussion could be added on the D.C. portion of the creek. Currently DDOE has a few Rock Creek-related documents on its website which are rather technical (TMDLs, etc.), so they may not be the most helpful references for a Wikipedia entry. Maybe someone more knowledgable than I would like to summarize the state of water quality in the D.C. portion. Hopefully DDOE will eventually provide a webpage and/or some "plain English" documents about Rock Creek. Moreau1 06:04, 6 November 2007 (UTC)
