Dogwood Park Tributary Stream Restoration
Dogwood Park Stream Restoration Design

The Dogwood Park Stream Restoration project was recommended in the 2011 Cabin John Watershed Study as a crucial component to the long-term health of the watershed. Assessments of the tributary found very poor conditions including highly eroded and unstable stream banks that threatens that private property, public infrastructure and mature trees. This project will enhance the watershed through stream restoration, wetland enhancement, reforestation and the protection of private and public property and infrastructure along the Dogwood Tributary from Waddington Lane to Cabin John Parkway.

Location: Stream valley from Waddington Lane to Cabin John Parkway. View the project limits.

Status: Construction has begun. Tree removal will begin in August 2016. Residents may experience increased construction traffic in the immediate vicinity of the construction area.

Estimated Completion: Summer 2017
