A June 2016 article by Elliott Robinson of the Richmond Times-Dispatch describes a stream restoration project on Hungary Creek, a tributary in the Chickahominy River/James River basin in Henrico County, Va. The $800,000 project on 1,800 linear feet of the creek is intended to mitigate erosion and sedimentation problems resulting from an accumulation over several decades of stormwater drainage pipes into the creek’s watershed. The Hungary Creek project is part of about 200 miles of streams that county officials have assessed in recent years for possible projects to reduce stormwater runoff of sediments or nutrients.
