How the borough, the engineers, the park service, and the contractors teamed up to complete the Culp Run project

The Watershed Alliance of Adams County will host an event designed to inform and educate local residents concerning what went into the recent rehabilitation of Culp Run.

Attendees will hear directly from the team who did the work, beginning at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28, downstairs at the Ag Center, 670 Old Harrisburg Rd., Gettysburg.
The Gettysburg Borough Storm Water Authority teamed up with C.S. Davidson & Son to define the cleanup project, which also required close coordination with Gettysburg National Military Park. Lititz-based LandStudies, Inc. was contracted to design and implement the cleanup project, which was completed last fall. In brief, the cleanup consisted of removing legacy sediments; grading the banks of Culp Run to minimize erosion; restoring the stream’s “sinuosity,” or bends and curves; and stabilizing the stream’s banks with temporary matting and permanent riparian plantings that will create a wetland.
A representative of LandStudies, Inc. will walk us through the stages of the stream repair project—how the repair was completed and why. It promises to be an educational evening, and we hope to see you there!
