Forest Hills Connection has extensively covered the daylighting and restoration of the Broad Branch and Linnean streams, yet there’s still so much we can learn about the work. We get another chance this Thursday during a live webcast about the projects.
On December 3rd from 12-1:30 p.m., Steve Saari, who managed the projects for the District Department of Energy and Environment, will take part in a webcast about two award-winning projects in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. One of those projects, of course, is the Broad Branch-Linnean restoration. The host of the webcast is the Chesapeake Stormwater Network, which gives awards each year to the best stormwater management projects in the region. Learn why “The judges felt this was truly the Best Stream Restoration… in the Chesapeake Bay.”
The other award-winning project to be discussed is a massive streetscaping and landscaping project in DC’s Chevy Chase and Petworth neighborhoods. DOEE and partners worked with participating homeowners to resurface alleys and parking lanes, as well as install rain barrels and rain gardens, all to reduce stormwater runoff into Rock Creek. The RiverSmart program also won a Vision Award from the Committee of 100 for the Federal City in 2012.
