Project Description

This project involved the installation of an innovative system of water quality treatment facilities to reduce nutrient and bacteria loads and decrease flooding in a Virginia neighborhood. The three phase project consisted of a bio-retention swale and two regenerative stormwater conveyance channels installed across four private properties. In addition to the water quality benefit, the project restored wetland functions, provided an aesthetic improvement and reduced property flooding.
