Nash Run Stream Restoration and Trash Trap

Project Description

This project was a 1,400 foot stream restoration project that was combined with the installation of a trash trap. The project required substantial legacy sediment removal in order to ensure a low floodplain bench would exist in the stream corridor to reduce bank erosion. The resulting stream reach provided improved water quality treatment, reduced trash inputs to the Anacostia River, and reduced the risk of flooding to surrounding homes.
