There has been a strong push from government agencies to clean up the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Typically stream restoration helps to remove pollutants and sediment from eventually washing into the Chesapeake Bay. Each stream restoration is uniquely designed by stream restoration experts for a specific purpose.
Techniques, materials and type of structures vary from one stream to another. Some may use instream structures such as log vanes, J-Hooks, cross vanes, rock steps, rock cross vanes, logs, boulder pools, rock sills, log sills, toe woods etc.… These construction structures can be supplemented with upland and riparian buffer seeding and plantings using plugs and live stakes.
We work very closely with our clients, engineers and designers during the preconstruction, construction and warranty stages to restore a stream that works while adding beauty to the local environment. We have performed stream restorations for government agencies and private developers in Spotsylvania, City of Fredericksburg, Town of Christiansburg and Chesterfield County.
We have installed many different kinds of bio filters such as rock, sand, media, grass filters, and grassy swales in a variety of sizes
Our bio filters can be found all around the region in Spotsylvania, Stafford, City of Fredericksburg, King George, Prince William and Nelson Counties.
Hydro seeding, silt fence installation and maintenance, swppp inspections, repairing outfall modifications, mulch or straw stabilization are only a few of the ways we help contractors with erosion control issues. We have performed work in Spotsylvania, Stafford, City of Fredericksburg, Prince William, Westmoreland, Caroline, King George, Culpeper, Nelson, Fauquier, Fairfax and Hanover Counties.
When a developer or organization has impacted a wetland in one area a new wetland is created to offset the loss of the original one. Working closely with environmental engineers and consultants is critical in creating a new wetland properly. We have performed wetland mitigation in Spotsylvania, City of Fredericksburg, Stafford and King George Counties.

Bond Release Work
We work extensively with developers in performing Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and County punch list items in subdivision and commercial projects. Our preference is to be involved at the ground floor. This means attending joint meetings on site with county and VDOT officials, developers, engineers and consultants. This onsite walkthrough during which the punch list is created enables us to get a better understanding of the scope of work needed and to help all parties come up with alternative cost saving solutions where possible. Working together from the start is the most efficient way to accomplish this tedious task. We have performed bond release work in Prince William, Stafford, Spotsylvania, City of Fredericksburg, King George, and Caroline Counties.
