Tuscarora High School Stream Restoration
The southern fork of Big Spring Branch flows across the property of the new Tuscarora High School. During construction of Tuscarora High School, the school system provided many enhancements to the stream. In particular, much of the stream channel was restored and stabilized, riparian areas were planted with trees and shrubs, and an old farm pond was converted to a wetland. All these changes will dramatically improve the stream conditions on the property and will also serve as an excellent teaching resource for the students.
The Loudoun County Public School’s investment in the stream restoration work related to the new school construction was fundamental to the Department of Building and Development’s ability to propose and win the Big Spring grant.
