Private Residence Stream Restoration

Project: Private Residence Stream Restoration
Project Sponsor: Homeowner
Location: Central Baltimore County, MD
Scope: The homeowner had a small ephemeral stream cutting across their property, running behind their pool. Although often dry, a substantial amount of run-off (from upstream developments) would be channeled through this stream during most rain events. The banks were severely eroding and threatening to undercut the adjacent pool. Working closely with the designer on this design/build project, ER&M was tasked with re-grading the stream banks, raising the base of the stream channel, installing grade control structures, stabilizing the under-cut foot-bridge foundation, stabilizing the exposed stream banks, and installing native vegetation. Due to the emergency nature of this project, and limited construction details, it was critical that ER&M work closely, as a team, with the designer/engineer to successfully complete this work.
