Long Reach stream restoration – informational meeting
November 2, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
Columbia Association (CA) wants to make sure you get your questions answered when it comes to stream restoration efforts taking place in our community. There are plenty of opportunities to learn and ask questions as we move through this process.
The latest project will ultimately stretch from High Tor Hill to the head of Lake Elkhorn, which includes large portions of stream valleys in Long Reach such as the portion of the stream above Jackson Pond. This will reduce the amount of sediment being washed into Lake Elkhorn from badly eroding stream banks and protect residents’ homes that are threatened by stream bank erosion.
This project is being led by Wetland Studies and Solutions Inc. (WSSI), under the regulatory oversight of the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) and the Army Corps of Engineers. CA has granted easements to allow this important work to take place.
CA will join WSSI for a presentation at Stone House on Tuesday, November 2 from 6pm to 8:30pm. During this meeting, representatives will outline the details of this project, the timeline and the benefit to the community. There will be time allotted for Q&A as well.
