Water Quality Consequences

Long-term impacts would be expected to be beneficial as a result of a reduction in the volume of uncontrolled runoff entering Klingle Creek. Berger study, 3-26.

Water and sewer lines under the road required 4-5 feet of coverage, and may suffer from loss of the roadway.  Berger Exec Summary 3; page 3-51 and 3-53.

In 1988, and when Klingle Road was still opened, the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs conducted, under an agreement with the Environmental Protection Agency, a biological survey of many of the streams in the District of Columbia.  This little tributary next to Klingle Road was included.  The study concluded that the tiny Klingle tributary supported one of the more ecological balanced and natural aquatic faunal communities in the District.  

James J. Shabelski, PE, Water and Sewer Design Branch, WASA, states, "Under this alternative, to rebuilding Klingle Road to its Original and Alignment and Dimensions and repair/replace storm drainage, all infrastructure should be built to current standards and codes.  Based on prior DC DPW studies, it would appear that the construction of a new storm drain in the paved road from Woodley Road to Porter Street is the optimum solution.  The channel along Klingle Road should be restored to natural conditions as required by the National Park Service."  Berger Appendix A, Agency Coordination
