To do our part in continuing the clean-up of Chesapeake Bay, the City is planning a series of projects to remove pollutants (specifically nitrogen and phosphorus) and sediment from water ways before they enter the Rappahannock River. The next project is changing a stormwater retention area on Smith Run, between the Great Oaks subdivision (north of Route 3) and Police Headquarters (west of Cowan Boulevard) into a series of wetlands. Planning for this project, known as ‘Pond D’, will start this fall with construction intended to begin by the end of 2021. The project will also include improvements to the dam for Pond D, to ensure its safety. The attached power point presentation with detailed information on this effort was presented to City Council on June 25.
