Stream Protection Strategy


Stream Protection Strategy Report

In 1998 Fairfax County initiated a countywide Stream Protection Strategy Program which entailed the sampling of all the major streams and tributaries throughout the county to assess stream water quality. The focus of this assessment was biological indicators of the ecological health of streams which included aquatic insects and fish, fecal coliform, some chemical parameters and habitat assessment of several physical characteristics. The main purpose of the Stream Protection Strategy Program is to better understand the degree of stream degradation, to formulate measures to effectively reverse negative trends, identify and prioritize areas with the greatest needs and recommend targeted stream preservation and restoration.

If you need additional information or have comments or suggestions regarding any aspect of the program, please contact the Stormwater Planning Division at 703-324-5500, TTY 711, or by e-mail.
