I am often walking past the site of the Broad Branch (now under way) and Linnean Stream restoration projects. There are changes each time. Watching the process unfold is fascinating.
The green apparatus, a pump, and the long black pipe are for rerouting a cracked sewage line that is leaking into Linnean stream. (Correction: The pipe is for rerouting the sewer line along Broad Branch Road, which DC Water is currently repairing. DC Water did these repairs in the Linnean Park area a couple of months ago.)
While walking by on Presidents’ Day, I interrupted a meeting of contractor Keith Underwood of Underwood Associates, a stream restoration company out of Annapolis, with his crew. They kindly let me take a group photo.
Walk by and see the hum of activity for yourself!
