Tucker Avenue Neighborhood Stormwater Project Community Meeting Sept 19, 2019

  1. 1. A Fairfax County, VA, publication Department of Public Works and Environmental Services Working for You! TUCKER AVENUE and SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOODS Community Meeting Storm Response and Project Update September, 2019 Neighborhood Stormwater Improvement Project Dranesville District
  2. 2. Tucker Avenue and Surrounding Neighborhoods Community Information Meeting Wednesday, September 18, 2018 Chesterbrook Elementary 1753 Kirby Rd, McLean @JohnFoustva @DranesvilleSupervisor Dranesville@FairfaxCounty.gov https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dranesville/ WELCOME AND THANK YOU!
  3. 3. Tucker Avenue and Surrounding Neighborhoods Stormwater Management Introductions • Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES) – Maintenance and Stormwater Management Division (MSMD) – Stormwater Planning Division (SWPD) – Wastewater Collection Division (WCD) • Land Development Services (LDS) • Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District (NVSWCD) • Virginal Department of Transportation (VDOT) • Stantec – Design Consultants 3
  4. 4. Tucker Avenue and Surrounding Neighborhoods Stormwater Management Agenda • Recent Storms and Flood Response Update • Project Updates – Design Status – Existing Drainage Conditions – Existing Utilities – Preliminary Conceptual Design – Easement • Homeowner Drainage Improvements • Proposed Schedule and Next Steps 4
  5. 5. Tucker Avenue and Surrounding Neighborhoods Stormwater Management July 8th Storm Response • Intense storm with heaviest rainfall ranging from 3 to 5 inches in 90 minutes. 5 Gridded (2-square mile) rainfall amounts from Gauge-adjusted radar rainfall (from Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service, NWS) Washington Post Article: How and why the D.C. area was deluged by a month’s worth of rain in an hour Monday (July 8th, 2019)
  6. 6. Tucker Avenue and Surrounding Neighborhoods Stormwater Management Recent Storm Response and Stormwater Drainage Issues 6 Service inquiries prior to July 2019 Input from 2018 community meeting July 2019 flood response
  7. 7. Tucker Avenue and Surrounding Neighborhoods Stormwater Management Updates on Sewer Backup and Overflow issues 7 Wastewater Inspection: • 7/8/19 Trouble Response Staff dispatched for initial wastewater backup inspection. Staff provided “backup” information packets to impacted residents. • 7/10/19 CCTV staff completed inspections to determine the cause wastewater backups in multiple homes. Staff found no defects such as roots, debris, fats-oil-grease (FOG) or breaks which may have contributed to the backups. • CCTV staff dispatched a second time to conduct dye testing of area way drains at homes to confirm connection to wastewater pipes.
  8. 8. Tucker Avenue and Surrounding Neighborhoods Stormwater Management Updates on Sewer Backup and Overflow issues 8 Next Steps: • Back Flow Valve (BFV) packages were mailed to all the impacted residents after the storm event – Option for residents for backup protection. – BFV is a flap-type device on private lateral to prevent wastewater backup if pipe surcharges. – Requires an agreement with the County per code 67.1-2-1(b)(12) which prohibits discharging surface or ground water into a wastewater system. Therefore, area way drains at the home must be disconnected. – BFV requires periodic maintenance by homeowner.
  9. 9. Tucker Avenue and Surrounding Neighborhoods Stormwater Management Updates on Sewer Backup and Overflow issues 9 Next Steps: • Level Monitoring – County has installed level sensor at the manhole (030-4-212) close to the intersection of Tucker and Somerville Dr. The level of water in the manhole will continued to be monitored for several months.
  10. 10. Tucker Avenue and Surrounding Neighborhoods Stormwater Management Neighborhood Stormwater Improvement Projects • Identify and evaluate house flooding and public safety concerns • Improve drainage conditions • Reduce and treat stormwater runoff at the source • Improve water quality and stream protection • Use innovative & functional designs • Make improvements compatible with characteristics of neighborhood • Partner with community to develop sound, cost effective solutions that can be collaboratively implemented and maintained • Build on lessons learned to help improve site development process for infill development 10
  11. 11. Tucker Avenue and Surrounding Neighborhoods Stormwater Management Neighborhood Stormwater Improvement Project: Update 11 DESIGN TASK STATUS Topographic (Land) Survey Complete Utility Designation Complete Sub-surface borings to locate utilities and classify soils Begin 9/23 Stormwater drainage analysis and report Ongoing Concept design Ongoing Easement needs and acquisition Next Steps

  22. 22. 22 Tucker Avenue and Surrounding Neighborhoods Conceptual Solutions – Features Enhanced swales with infiltration Enhanced swales
  23. 23. 23 Tucker Avenue and Surrounding Neighborhoods Conceptual Solutions – Features New infrastructure that provides conveyance and infiltration Where soil conditions are favorable, options to convey stormwater while permitting infiltration will be considered Check Dams Imbricated Stone Check Dams Enhanced swales
  24. 24. 24 Tucker Avenue and Surrounding Neighborhoods Conceptual Solutions – Features A level spreader reduces the energy of stormwater runoff, converting it to sheet flow. Reforestation increases plant cover that further diffuses the flow of stormwater, stabilizes the soil, and increases uptake of water. Road improvements at Somerville Drive Minor floodplain grading and reforestation Level spreader Pavement reduction
  25. 25. Tucker Avenue and Surrounding Neighborhoods Easements: Land Rights Review • Review of existing easements • Determine need for additional easements to construct and maintain improvements • Work with individual homeowners • Land rights needed before proceeding with final design and construction 25
  26. 26. Tucker Avenue and Surrounding Neighborhoods Stormwater Management Homeowner Improvements 26 HOW CAN YOU HELP? In addition to project elements, here are a few ideas that individual homeowners can do to help contribute to improving neighborhood drainage goals. LID practices  Compost Blanket  Infiltration trench  Rain garden  Rain barrels Conventional practices  French drain  Yard inlet (will not prevent flooding from a storm like July 8th) Fence design  Increased gaps  Landscaped drainage swales
  27. 27. Example Homeowner Improvements Stormwater Management French Drain | Rain Garden 27 French drains and rain gardens aid in directing water away from foundations and increase filtration into the ground
  28. 28. Example Homeowner Improvements Stormwater Management Infiltration Trench| Compost Blanket 28 Compost blankets are effective at reducing runoff, improving soil structure, and aid in establishing vegetation Infiltration trenches are designed to receive stormwater runoff and allow that runoff to infiltrate into the ground
  29. 29. Example Homeowner Improvements Stormwater Management Rainwater Harvesting 29 Rain barrels provide an opportunity to capture and store roof runoff and come in an ever-increasing variety of styles to match any preference
  30. 30. Example Homeowner Improvements Stormwater Management Privacy Fence Design 30 Increase openings in fence design while maintaining privacy Provide gaps at ground level to permit water to flow past Incorporate swales and French drains adjacent to fence lines Options in the design of privacy fences can help improve the flow of stormwater and reduce damming
  31. 31. Tucker Avenue and Surrounding Neighborhoods Project Schedule & Next Steps • Concept design plan: December 2019 • County to review and formally start the easement process: – The process takes anywhere from 4 to 6 months – Land rights must be completed before final design and construction • Community Meeting: February 2020 • Final Design and Permitting • Community Coordination • Utility Relocation • Construction 31 Gas Line Relocation
