Approximately 30,000 acres of county land are committed to residential development, while 173,000 acres are classified as agricultural. Carroll County is one of the leading agricultural regions in Maryland. Large numbers of livestock are maintained in the district, including poultry, dairy and beef cattle, horses, hogs and sheep.
The cumulative impact of agricultural runoff, urban erosion and increased population has raised concerns about water quality in the county.
