The Cloverfields community is located in the Cox Creek watershed in Queen Anne’s County, Maryland. It drains 1.12 square miles of land upstream of Ackerman Road. The entire watershed is contained within the Eastern Coastal Plain Region. Part of the drainage for the community, which follows historic patterns, now forms a blue line stream on google maps.

Constructed before modern day floodplain and building regulations, certain areas of the Cloverfields subdivision are vulnerable to tidal and riverine flooding. Depending on the degree of damage, flood events range from general nuisance flooding events that have low levels of inundation that do not pose significant threats to public safety or major property damage to major events that pose significant threats to public safety and severe property damage.
