Discharge into Huntley Meadows Watershed

As a long time donor/supporter of the wonderful Huntley Meadows Park, I have to say after finding out about a hushed up storm water project in the Hayfield area. I am done with you all. At no time has the county told us all about this project that will discharge over 4ft of additional water per rain event into the embattled eco system. Just recently I learned that there is a large storm water project slated for Hayfield area. I believe this project has been kept quiet so that we would no protest it if it was leaked out. The only citizens who have knowledge of it are those along the projects path. After listening to some concerned citizens speaking over this topic I learned more about the plan.

Shame on the Huntley Meadows Staff for not sharing this project with us.

Call Jeff Mckay and tell him if he wants to continue his employment with Fairfax County he needs a better plan and not harm the environment of Huntley Meadows water shed. 703-971-6262

OP generally when the county undertakes projects like this the design includes some sort of retention facility. To dumb it down for simpletons that means they hold water on site and release it slowly as it rises in the cistern. These SWM management facilities are usually part of a park, school or other municipal renovation. There is a huge one that was part of the Marshall HS renovation. It's a really good way to control runoff when increasing impervious area due to development. As the area becomes more crowded the urban planners need ways to keep erosion at bay and using these methods are the most sustainable. The upside for johnny homeowner is your tax dollars are being spent with your best interest in mind. So do a bit of research before bitching about something you obviously know nothing about. DumbAss.

Investigate things before you comment.


Not happening at all. This is a straight pipe down Hayfield Rd that will start at the intersection of Hayfield Rd and Telegraph Rd, by tapping into an existing storm drain. Not a storm water retention pond in this plan at all. This has been so hush hush so that no one raises the questions about a SWM.

I agree with the OP. Why would Huntley Meadows allow something like this into their sacred watershed? There is not a SWM on this project after I looked into it. Water will enter a 48 inch pipe and run straight down Hayfield and deposit into the H/M watershed.

RAIN WATER OUT OF THE SKY DIRECTLY INTO THE WATER IS NOT A PROBLEM. IT'S WHEN IT RUNS OFF THE ROADWAY INTO A STORM DRAIN THEN INTO THE WATERSHED IS THE ISSUE. I SEE YOUR POINT IN YOUR QUESTION.

The County is upgrading the stornwater system in a fully developed residential section of town. Basically it is fixing flooding problems for the residents. There is no new impervious surface being created....therefore.....no additional runoff. OP is a Ding Dong. Typical liberal.

Very simple, stop these crazy developers from building 20 story buildings in a county that has infrastructure and no roads. It's time we started taking care of county lands and parks.

These pump and dump developers are ruining this county. They come in, dupe the planning board(or pay them off), sell after 4 years and leave the county high and dry.

You literally have no idea what you are talking about. I feel dumber having read your post.

So you want to stop people from building? Do you have any idea how many people around here derive their living from the land development industry? Fuck no you don't because you are a stupid liberal. Here's a suggestion: Move. Lot's of cheap houses for sale in Detroit/St Louis/Cleveland.....Oh, you don't want to move there? Then shut the fuck up and go do something constructive with you time like sticking your head up your own ass.

What hell?

You make no sense whatever. By your logic Fairfax County should be encouraging people selling meth and drugs because "a lot residents make money off it."

We all want Fairfax county to be a healthy, safe, fun place to live. Turning Fairfax County in to downtown LA with SMOG alerts and 3 hour traffic jams from overbuilding will make the county worse.

I've lived in Fairfax County for 40 years I and can tell you it was great when there were steeplechase horse races, wide open fields for kids athlete events and pristine parcels of land and lakes set aside for parks.

No it's let see how many people we can cram into a square cube and we'll deal with the infrastructure and county costs later.

Sick of the board turning their heads and letting developers run buck wild building with no forethought of the QOL for residents.

Well, I've lived here for 46 years, do I win?

I remember playing soccer at Idylwood. They were building 66 at the time. Dad said "it's not wide enough..." that was 40 years ago. You couldn't get a liquor drink poured in the town of Vienna except at the various lodges and Westwood CC. Traffic on 123 sucked. blah, blah, blah.....

You can blame the development pattern in Fairfax on Audrey Moore and all the liberals on the BOS at the time. They downzoned the County. How'd that work out? I guess you know the answer.

You can't fix dumb. The site below has some history of the many public hearings and public meetings concerning the Hayfield Road Pipe Project. It's been right out in the open the entire time.

You sweet, summer child.

This is a troll site.

THE INFORMATION ON THE COUNTY WEBSITE IS NOT CORRECT. IT STATES THE PIPE PROJECT IS A 66" SIZE PIPE. TODAY IT IS 48" PIPE.THE COUNTY THINKS THIS MIGHT SOLVE THE PROBLEM. SO WHY WOULD YOU SPEND OVER 3 MILLION DOLLARS TO SEE IF IT WILL WORK? WHAT IS THE PLAN WHEN IT DOESN'T WORK?

After contacting the Huntley Meadows Watershed information office in the Massey Building, it was revealed that Fairfax County will be installing thousands of Brita Water Filters to keep everything fresh, clean, and ready to drink.

You do your cause no good in posting blatant lies. Read the public meeting notes behind the link above.

Something doesn't add up here. The county had a information meeting. I don't believe there ever was a public hearing for this project. I'm kinda thinking there should have been some kind of impact study as to the issues it might cause when the mile long pipe enters into the watershed of H/M.

7 million bucks to install a 48 inch pipe. The community was duped by the county because they the community voted for a 60 inch pipe. When the vote was taken there was never any talk of also having to replace sewer lines to almost 30 homes because of the construction.

Do what we did when we were kids growing up in Vienna. We used to play in the creeks around town and we would walk underneath the roads in storm drains that would direct the creek under the street. Once when walking in one of the drains we heard a flushing sound and saw a discharge come out of a small side pipe. We figured out it was coming from this house close to the creek. This house was slways under construction. Someone had connected the house's waste stream to the storm drain under the road. We thought that was gross so we packed the side pipe with sand, rocks,clay and dirt. We saw plumbers trucks there over the next few days. Backed it up good. One of my friends told his Dad who laughed and reported the house to the town. Eventually the pipe was cemented over.
