Alexandria, Arlington to Hold Public Meeting on Dredging Four Mile Run
Members of the community are invited to a virtual public meeting on May 17 at 7 p.m., about a project to dredge Four Mile Run. Dredging Four Mile Run is an important federal flood control measure. Alexandria and Arlington have partnered to dredge Four Mile Run since 1974. Periodic dredging of significant accumulated sediment in the channel that borders the municipalities is required to maintain conveyance capacity and freeboard for the channel as set by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Project work will be conducted in an environmentally sensitive area. In addition to periodic dredging, the municipalities share maintenance, including clearing debris, monitoring vegetation growth and shoaling, as required by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers annual inspection program.
Simultaneous interpretation will be provided in Spanish. The meeting can be accessed via Zoom by using the following link: https://zoom.us/j/96030664474
Meeting ID: 960 3066 4474
