The Tinkers Creek Stream Restoration Project is an economical, full‐delivery solution for Prince George’s County Department of the Environment to meet TMDL requirements designed to restore water quality to the Chesapeake Bay and comply with their MS4 permit. The Tinkers Creek Stream Restoration Project is being completed by the GV‐Petro Joint Venture, LLC, a partnership between GreenVest and Petro Design Build Group. At over 7.6 miles in restoration length, this large scale, urban stream restoration will generate over 600 IAT credits and is one of the largest stream restoration projects ever completed in Maryland. The project will stabilize public and private properties historically subject to severe bank erosion, stabilize and protect utility infrastructure, reduce sediment and nutrient loading, and create significant water quality and wildlife habitat benefits. There are various constraints working in an urban environment including designing and working around utilities and coordinating with numerous public and private property owners. Construction of the Tinkers Creek Stream Restoration Project was completed in 2021.
