The flood protection portion of the project will include channel improvements to Tuscarora Creek to help reduce flooding of the adjoining residential properties.  In addition, storm drainage is included to handle the 100-year storm event along with a three to four foot high wall.

The stream restoration portion of the project will include realignment of the stream channel to reduce/eliminate erosion and improve overall stream health, and planting of a riparian buffer along portions of the stream.

The project will be constructed in phases, with the initial Phase I construction located upstream of Harrison Street behind the T.W. Perry and bowling alley properties.  Phase II is located downstream of Harrison Street and behind the skate park and Loudoun County Rescue Squad properties.
