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.

Construction began in April 2016. The instream construction is anticipated to be complete by the end of June. Stream bank zone plantings will follow. 

Shrub and tree plantings above the streambank zone will occur early in the fall in order to provide the best conditions for those plantings to flourish.

After construction, the Town will continue to monitor the condition of the channel. This project is expected to be complete in Fall 2016. 

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.
