The Northern Virginia Stream Restoration Bank invested more than $870,000 in commercial developer environmental remediation funds to repair decades of erosion damage, redirect the streambed away from exposed sewer infrastructure, and enhance a 500+ ft. long area between Hickory Cluster Blocks 1 and 2, transforming an environmental liability into a valuable community asset, all at no direct cost to HCA Members.  Work started September 19, 2016 and was completed in February 2017.
