Eagle Harbor Stream Restoration & Community Resiliency Project

  • Project Type: Ecosystem Restoration & Resilience
  • Watershed Name: Upper Chesapeake
  • Client Type: Government Agencies
  • Status: Active

The Eagle Harbor Stream Restoration and Community Resiliency Project is a GV-Petro Joint Venture, LLC (a partnership between GreenVest and Petro Design Build Group) solution for the Town of Eagle Harbor, MD that is broken into three phases. The project is needed to address erosion and sedimentation that causes nuisance flooding and shoreline property damage. Flooding is worsened by increased coastal storm surges over time, while sea level rise and increased intensity of storms has eroded the shoreline and negatively impacts those properties. Phases 1 & 2 of the project involves approximately 3,100 linear feet of stream restoration and drainage improvements extending from the Patuxent River to the headwater tributaries of Coleman Creek, and two culvert replacements within the Town. By excavating areas upstream and downstream of Patuxent Boulevard to provide flood storage, the impacts of flooding on roads and private property will be reduced.
