Bullards Park Stream Restoration Spot Repair

The Bullards Park Stream Restoration Spot Repair is intended to protect public infrastructure and stabilize an intermittent tributary to Watts Branch within the Potomac River watershed. Due to erosion, the project is intended to protect public infrastructure and enhance the watershed through stream restoration, wetland enhancement, and invasive species control (bamboo).

Project includes:

  • Reduce erosion threatening public infrastructure, private property, and mature trees.
  • Stabilize the stream.
  • Reduce invasive species (e.g. bamboo).
  • Reestablish native vegetation.
  • Protect existing wetlands and forested areas.
  • Reduce pollutants to the Chesapeake Bay.
