Private Residence Stream Restoration

Project Profile

Project: Private Residence Stream Restoration

Project Sponsor: Homeowner

Location: NW Baltimore County, MD

Scope: The homeowner had a small stream, running alongside their house, that experienced high flow conditions during storm events. The banks were eroding and beginning to undercut an old stone-foundation bridge supporting a portion of their driveway.

Working closely with the designer, ER&M was tasked with removing the existing invasive vegetation (Japanese knotweed) covering the stream’s banks, stabilizing the under-cut bridge foundation, reshaping the stream channel, installing grade-control structures, 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.
