A plan to restore the Harper’s Glen Stream was initiated as part of the Harper’s Glen Townhouse Association Healthy Stream Project, a community-based project whose goal is to conserve and restore approximately 950 feet of stream located on CA Open Space parcel 14, behind the Harper’s Glen townhouses. This stream restoration project is an extension of the work completed by Columbia Association on the downstream or Northeast side of Harper’s Farm Road in 2010 and 2011.
The stream is eroding through most of the reach and depositing sediment above the culvert under Harper’s Farm Road and further downstream in Wilde Lake. The Harper’s Glen Townhouse Association received a grant from the Chesapeake Bay Trust for the design and has worked diligently to obtain the federal and state permits for this project. CA has dedicated money and contracted with Environmental Quality Resources to build the project. The pathway that runs Southwest from Harper’s Farm Road behind Harper’s Glen and towards the Swansfield Pool and Neighborhood Center will be closed for up to 90 days beginning July 11.

We thank you for your patience during the project to restore this stream in Harper’s Choice.
