This project consists of construction of a Priority II and III stream restoration to stabilize 818 linear feet of tributaries to Schenks Branch (769 linear feet of Schenks Branch Tributary and 49 linear feet of an unnamed tributary at its confluence with Schenks Branch Tributary). The project is located in McIntire Park, in the future location of the Botanical Garden of the Piedmont. The restoration project limits are defined by the upstream Norfolk Southern Railroad right-of-way downstream to the John Warner Parkway overpass. Schenks Branch Tributary is experiencing active severe erosion of its banks and bed, sending excessive amounts of sediment downstream to waterways listed as impaired by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). As a result, the stream offers poor habitat for aquatic organisms and is largely inaccessible to the public. Schenks Branch Tributary’s current condition has been assessed, and design of a restoration approach that will bring the stream back to a stable and healthy state was completed. The Schenks Branch Tributary design utilizes an approach that aims to emulate natural, stable river systems. The design for Schenks Branch Tributary includes grading of the stream bed and banks and installation of features such as riffles, pools, cross vanes, j-hook vanes, toe wood, soil lifts, and a rock cascade. The project includes a planting plan that will meet ecological and stream requirements while fitting into the overall fabric of the Botanical Garden site. The planting plan includes native seed mixes, plugs, live stakes, shrubs, and trees. The goals of this stream restoration are to reduce pollution, increase ecological function, and improve overall condition of the stream, all while integrating with the planned Botanical Garden of the Piedmont. The restored stream will become an important component of the Botanical Garden of the Piedmont and provide a unique opportunity for the community to interact with and see the benefits of stream restoration. The project is being funded by grant funds from the DEQ’s Stormwater Local Assistance Fund (SLAF) and matching funds from the City of Charlottesville, VA (City).
