About the project:
The Paint Branch Stream Restoration is located in College Park, Maryland between the College Park Airport and Lake Artemesia. The site serves as the sole stream mitigation site for the unavoidable permanent impacts to waters of the US due to the construction of the MDOT MTA Purple Line Lite Rail project. The site starts just downstream of the CSX railroad and Metro line bridges flowing southeast to the confluence with Indian Creek. The project includes 3,300 LF of stream restoration designed by Coastal Resources, Inc (Part of the GEC Team with Gannet Flemming and WRA). Design was completed in 2018, and Construction began June of 2020 and was completed in April of 2021. The construction cost was $4 million. Construction was completed by Environmental Quality Resources, LLC with Empire Landscape. The site was planted in 2021 and has been considered an overall success by the client, stakeholders, the community, and all those that worked on the project.
