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. The project was originally identified for restoration due to erosion that is jeopardizing existing public utilities including a sanitary sewer pipe and manhole. The stream restoration area originates at a 48-inch storm drain outfall south of Calvert Road and extends approximately 300 linear feet downstream. This project will protect public infrastructure and enhance the watershed through stream restoration, wetland enhancement, and invasive species control (bamboo).

Location
