The project consists of restoring approximately 5,500 linear feet of a highly degraded tributary of Difficult Run using natural channel design techniques. This project is part of Fairfax County’s larger efforts to restore many of the county’s degraded streams while improving overall water quality and the condition of the Chesapeake Bay.
The primary goals of the restoration are:
- Stabilize the channel and prevent future erosion and degradation along the stream
- Restore native trees and herbaceous planting to promote natural reforestation
- Develop a healthy ecosystem
