Woodland Farms

Phase II Stream Restoration - April 2021

Scope of Work

The Woodland Farms Phase II Stream Restoration project will restore approximately 2,385 linear feet of degraded stream channel within the Taskinas Creek - York River watershed within James City County, promoting long-term stability and function. This project includes the stabilization of the channel and establishment of a new floodplain elevation within the existing eroded channel and/or reconnection of the channel to the original floodplain elevation. 

These improvements will restore and enhance the non-tidal stream and tributary while improving drainage infrastructure and protecting property by reducing erosion in an area of the County which has highly erodible soils. In addition, by restoring the stream channel, nutrients and sediment contributed by active erosion will be reduced in downstream receiving waters. The project was let out to bid in October 2019. The lowest responsive and responsible bidder was HGS, LLC a Resource Environmental Solutions, LLC Company at $1,389,968. The Board of Supervisors, at the December 11, 2019 meeting, approved the contract award and contract documents are being finalized. Work began in March 2020 and was substantially complete on schedule in November 2020. Planting followed during the appropriate planting window in December 2020.
