GV-Petro completed the Tinkers Creek Stream Restoration Project for DOE in September 2021. At approximately 40,000 linear feet in restoration length, this large scale, urban stream restoration project is one of the largest stream restoration projects ever completed in Maryland. It has protected public and private properties from severe bank erosion, stabilized and protected utility and residential infrastructure, reduced sediment and nutrient loading, and created significant water quality and wildlife habitat benefits.
