Chickahominy Riverfront Park

Living Shoreline Stabilization - October 2019


Scope of Work

This project involves the design and construction of shoreline stabilization through the establishment of living shorelines along the Chickahominy River and Gordon Creek. The project involves a living shoreline with breakwater and beach nourishment on the west side of the park along the Chickahominy River, and marsh creation and stabilization using coir logs and rock marsh sills on the north side along Gordon Creek. The project will also incorporate approximately 0.75 acres of riparian buffer enhancement and creation. Locations where bald cypress trees are present along the toe of existing banks will be preserved and expanded with marsh creation wherever feasible.

Onsite Mass Sewage Treatment System for Aquatic Facility and Pavilion - October 2019


Scope of Work

The existing septic field is inadequate for the additional load created by a recently built splash pad and must be expanded. The septic field is being designed for up to 300 users per day appropriate for the occupancy of the pool, splash pad and pavilion combined.  The 90 percent design plan is included in this page.

Status of Project

A 90% design by Draper Aden Associates is complete and has been reviewed by the Virginia Department of Health (VDH). Additional utility location of existing unmarked/non-tracered legacy utilities are required and ongoing. Because the past Phase I archaeological investigations indicated the site has potential for prehistoric and historic sites on the property a Phase II investigation was completed by James River Institute with the conclusion that there are no significant finds within the project limits. The 100% design will require site plan review and final review by VDH. 

 Schedule

  • Design Plans - 90% Complete
  • Bidding Phase - December 2019
  • Construction Phase - March 2020-April 2020

Budget

  • Construction Budget - $150K
  • Draper Aden Associates (design, CQA) - $32,755
  • Amount Invoiced and percent completed - $21,323.66 – 65%

Milestones

  • Archaeological Investigation Complete (site clear)
  • Design is complete as of October 2019

Next Steps

  • Site plan approval
  • Solicit bids for the work.
  • Obtain land disturbing permits
  • Commence and complete construction prior to pool reopening Labor Day 2020

Project Issues

  • Existing unmarked/non-tracered legacy utilities
  • Archaeologically sensitive site
