The Greensburg Road Stream Restoration project employed Storm Water Management (SWM) practices to help alleviate historic flooding, which damaged the existing roadway and infrastructure.
DFI provided Construction Inspection (CI) services for this stream restoration project. Maintenance crews, with the Washington County, Maryland, Department of Public Works, tracked and reported the narrowing shoulder of the existing roadway and made recommendations to address worsening conditions after significant historic flooding. The restoration design employed an imbricated retaining wall with tie-backs and revetments along affected areas. Stilling pools and features were developed to slow the flow of the stream and to preserve the channel. The landscape approaches ensured successful Storm Water Management (SWM) and environmental preservation.
