RESTON ASSOCIATION REQUEST (Tape 6)

Supervisor Dix said that Dawn Biggs, Watershed Manager for the Reston Association, has planned a stream stabilization project within the Resource Protection Area of Snakeden Branch. The project is located in Reston located off Soapstone Drive within Association owned natural area. An unnamed tributary, over five feet deep at its mouth and with no vegetation on its mouth and with no vegetation on its banks, is highly erosive and adding untold quantities of sediment to downstream facilities.

Supervisor Dix said that the plan calls for creating a new centerline for the tributary and replacing the sinuosity to eliminate the erosive scour that now exists. In addition, the plan will create three shallow pool areas to serve as storm water retention areas and aid in ground water recharge. These areas will replace floodplain wetlands that were lost. The existing and proposed vegetation will trap sediment, nutrients, and other pollutants, effectively creating a retrofit Best Management Practice (BMP). No additional fill is associated with the project.

Supervisor Dix explained that the purpose of the project is to eliminate sediment loss from the existing system to improve greatly the condition of the natural environment and the water quality on downstream systems. The entire length of the project is 275 feet.

Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct staff to:

  • Waive the fee for the Rough Grading Plan and any other project associated fees; and
