Fairfax County will provide an extra $160,000 to help the Town of Vienna kick off a stream restoration project.
The county’s Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to approve the additional funding at their meeting on Tuesday.
The extra funds will go toward the design and construction of the Northside Park Piney Branch Stream Restoration Project.
Located in the Town of Vienna and the Difficult Run Watershed, the project will restore roughly 1,400 linear feet of the stream on Piney Branch by improving the water quality and providing more nutrients, according to county documents.
“The town will administer the design and construction of the Project. Partnering with the Town on this project will save the county the time and administrative costs that would be incurred if the county were to implement the project under its stormwater program,” according to the county.
Back in 2017, the county board gave $660,000 to the town to partially fund the project. After the town received six bids in December, “the total project estimate has increased by $333,006 due to higher than originally estimated construction bids,” according to the county.
The vote on Tuesday means the county will provide an additional $168,006 to the project, which now has a total estimated cost of $1.6 million.
The project is also being supported by an $825,000 grant from the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality, according to county documents.
“The town will reimburse the county funds that are not expended in accordance with the terms of the attached agreement,” according to the county.
