MCHENRY, Md. (AP) ― The federal government is helping to fund a study of the tourist economy at Deep Creek Lake in western Maryland.
U.S. Sens. Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin announced the $20,000 grant Tuesday from the Appalachian Regional Commission. Local authorities must come up with an equal amount.
The project will study the demographics of lake visitors during different seasons of the year.
It also will analyze the revenue derived from vacation home rentals and spending patterns at area businesses.
Cardin says the study will help guide growth in ways that will preserve the lake for future generations.
