Kristiansand Tributaries Stream Restoration

April 2014

Scope of Work

This project consists of the stabilization of outfalls and stream banks to reduce erosion caused by uncontrolled runoff from Richmond Road and adjacent commercial developments in the Lightfoot area.  This project will provide stabilization to the eroding headwater streams in Yarmouth Creek and protect adjacent utilities and properties from undermining due to erosion.  Additionally, this stream restoration will provide significant water quality benefits and contribute to meeting the County’s permit obligations for the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (CBTMDL) requirements.

Status of Project

A preliminary environmental investigation and engineering design has been completed by Stantec/Williamsburg Environmental Group. From the preliminary design, easement drawings have been prepared and a meeting with the property owners will determine whether easements can be obtained.  Once easements are assured, a detailed design will be executed to prepare for bidding of the work.
