RES delivered a groundbreaking turnkey stream restoration project on behalf of VDOT. The project was strategically enrolled as part of VDOT’s Bay TMDL Action Plan, with the associated nutrient reductions credited towards compliance with the Bay TMDL Special Conditions applicable to VDOT as a regulated MS4 under Virginia’s MS4 General Permit Program. This notable achievement was achieved under RES’ VDOT Statewide MS4/TMDL Implementation & Related Activities On-Call Contract.

This project’s scope encompassed the restoration of approximately seven miles of degraded channel along Wancopin Creek, as well as several unnamed perennial and intermittent tributaries to Wancopin Creek and Goose Creek. Situated on a private property spanning over 900 acres near Middleburg, VA, the project required RES to secure all necessary rights to implement and seek credit certification on behalf of VDOT. RES diligently undertook all aspects of the project, including land acquisition, design, permitting, construction, monitoring, and maintenance.

RES is currently in the third year of monitoring this project.
