Blue Leaf Stream Restoration Project
The Blue Leaf Stream Restoration Project consists of restoring approximately 825 linear feet of stream channel along the Blue Leaf Drive and Willow Oak Drive cul-de-sacs. By stabilizing the stream channel, this project aims to reduce erosion along the stream bank and improve the water quality of the stream.

Instream construction is complete. Plantings from seed, plugs and volunteer species are establishing themselves along the stream reach. Hydrophytic (water-loving) species, including rushes, sedges, mint and watercress, are present along the stream.

Riparian buffer shrubs and trees will be planted in Fall 2016. Though construction is complete, the Town will continue to monitor the condition of the channel. 

The total project cost is approximately $340,000 and is funded by the Town of Christiansburg and grant funds from the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) Stormwater Local Assistance Fund.
