Through the end of 2012, the Corps has authorized over $42 million for the Conservancy to pursue 121 mitigation projects. These projects attempt to achieve the overall programmatic goal of water quality improvement through the creation, restoration, and enhancement of wetlands and streams and through the restoration and enhancement of the surrounding upland buffers. The Trust Fund also achieves the preservation of highly functional wetlands, stream and buffer areas which add to water quality protection and improvement.
Work began May 15, 2012 in Charlottesville to restore 9,000 linear feet of Meadow Creek and preserve 12 acres of wetlands, over 1.5 miles of the Rivanna Trail, and a total of 72 acres of land. Learn more about Meadow Creek >>
