This project provides for in - stream restoration work along the highly urbanized Four Mile Run channel that is the border between Arlington County and the City of Alexandria. The project is part of a jointly approved Arli ngton County Board and Alexandria City Council Four Mile Run Restoration Master Plan (2006). When complete, it will be an international model of se nsitive, ecological stream restoration and will improve the environmental quality of a local watershed. It will accomplish this by integrating the surrounding natural areas with active an d urban nodes and maintaining flood control. A total of $1.536 million in State and Tribal Assistance Grant (STAG) awards and $1.35 million in City funds, with Arlington Cou nty contributing approximately the same amount to complete funding for the project.
