Project DetailsDescription and Overview:This stormwater management facility (Facility ID 0067DP) is located on Reston Homeowner Association property withinthe Difficult Run Watershed. The pond was originally built without adequate access to perform non-routine maintenancesuch as sediment removal and structural repairs. This project was initiated because the existing facility was overtoppedduring a storm event and severely eroded the emergency spillway and portions of the dam embankment. Also, theupstream inundation area is wooded and the outfall structure tends to clog with debris and requires frequentmaintenance. To stabilize the emergency spillway and reduce the chance of dam failure, the capacity of the principlespillway is increased by installing a larger size pipe and the emergency spillway is armored. To control the frequentmaintenance a larger size BMP trash rack is installed. A permanent maintenance road is installed to provide access forall types of future maintenance work.Project Scope of Work:• The eroded emergency spillway was reconstructed and armored with CL-II rip-rap.• The eroded dam embankment was reconstructed.• The existing 48” corrugated principal spillway pipe was replaced with a larger 60” CL-III RCP.• The existing riser structure was replaced by a large size (6’ x 6’ and 8’ high) structure.• The pond was graded and sediments were removed to achieve the original storage capacity.• Installed a 0.4 mile long permanent access road for future maintenance.• Installed a Fair Weather Crossing capable for vehicular access.• Restored the disturbed area using seeding and covering with coir fiber matting on all embankment slopes.DPWES Project Team:• Project Manager - Dipmani Kumar• Construction Manager - Yousef Rayyan• Project Inspectors - Yudhie Brownson & Jack Schambach• Land Acquisition Agent - Carol L.
