These projects were identified during the county’s stream physical assessment survey, the Little Hunting Creek Watershed Planning process and by the Hollin Hills community members.
This project will assess and design a stream stabilization of approximately 1800 linear feet of main stem channel and a small tributary in Goodman Park (Segment 1). The combined project will also assess and design a stream stabilization for 1100 linear feet of the main stem channel in Brickelmaier Park (Segment 2). The channels have areas of incision, exposed and eroding stream banks and falling trees. Funding is approved for this project. The channel will be restored to prevent erosion, convey stormwater, improve soils and support the native vegetation to restore ecosystem health.
This project is located within the Hollin Hills Community in Alexandria. Work will be within Goodman and Brickelmaier Parks.
Improvement of water quality through the removal of Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Total Suspended Solids.
