Lizard Hill

Bishopville, MD

 

This design/build project completed in 2011  had a number of goals including fish passage restoration to open 7 miles of stream to anadromous fish, stream restoration and floodplain reconnection of 5,500 linear ft of Buntings Branch, wetland creation of 19.25 acres of Atlantic White Cedar wetlands, reforestation of 6.4 acres of upland forest, and water quality treatment through all restoration activities. This project just received the Federal Highway Administration’s award for Exemplary Ecosystem Initiative due to our well-developed approach to preserving a threatened tree species and treating stormwater runoff.
