Fairfax County Holds Review Workshop for Cameron Run Watershed Draft Management Plan

On Thursday, June 16, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Mason District Governmental Center, 6507 Columbia Pike, Annandale, the Fairfax County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services will host a review workshop to obtain public input on the draft management plan for the Cameron Run Watershed. This is the third of four public meetings planned.

The Cameron Run watershed is the area south of I-66 inside the Capitol Beltway, including parts of Falls Church, Arlington and Alexandria, and south to Franconia Road and Kings Highway. The workshop will review the first draft of the watershed plan that was developed using resident input from the previous public meetings. Cameron Run watershed issues were identified during a public scoping meeting held in June 2004, and the public provided input on approaches to solving identified problems at the public meeting held last October.

Recognizing the need to protect the living environment while planning for the orderly development of the county and to complement efforts such as the Chesapeake Bay Agreement, Fairfax County is developing comprehensive management plans for each of the county’s 30 watersheds. Previously, the county completed biological and physical assessments of the condition of the county’s streams to support the development of watershed plans. The Cameron Run Watershed Management Plan will utilize information from these assessments and seek extensive input from the public. The county has retained the services of Versar Inc. to assist in the development of the plan.

Information on the watershed management planning efforts currently underway in the county can be found at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/watersheds. For additional information on the Cameron Run Watershed review workshop, contact Jennifer Shore of Versar Inc. at 1-866-341-4599 (toll free), TTY 711.
