Published on

The Midhill Place Outfall Restoration project was substantially completed on October 26, 2018. The primary goals of this project were to address public safety concerns, stabilize an eroded channel by using natural stream design techniques and promote the growth of native vegetation. The natural channel design techniques used, such as a reinforced bed mix riffle sections and step pools, reduce the flow velocity, provide stability, and enhance water quality along the streams leading to the Chesapeake Bay. The disturbed areas of the site were restored with native shrubs, plants and trees.
