Project Description

Built in 2003, this exceptionally-maintained hybrid BMP combines the benefits of a stream daylighting project, a wet pond with forebay, and the surrounding restored riparian habitat. The UVA Landscape Department conducts routine, sometimes daily, inspections to remove trash, identify and remove invasive species, and manage geese populations. The Utilities Department is responsible for maintaining the sediment control structures, and has performed two cleanings of the forebay during the BMP’s thirteen-year life.
