“Residents of adjoining neighborhoods, especially on Broad Bay Island, were worried about the proposal at first, said Kal Kassir, a member of the Broad Bay Island Civic League. They didn’t want an industrial enterprise – envisioned as ugly, noisy and smelly – plunked down in the middle of their quiet neighborhood. They changed their minds after meeting with Lynnhaven River Now.”
Oysters are good at cleaning sediment and bacteria out of waterways, which makes them great a cleaning rivers. The goal of the Lynnhaven Aquaculture Center – rendering of the property at left – is to introduce new oysters to the Lynnhaven River to clean it and meet state and federal water-quality standards.
The Lynnhaven Aquaculture Center is on the agenda tonight for City Council meeting.
“We had the opportunity to push the envelope on innovative and creative methods,” said Chris Brandt, executive vice president of Hourigan Construction. “There were so many certification levels that needed to be met that it was a job in itself to keep track of them all.”
The Center is on track to be the first commercial-scale building in the continental U.S. to earn net-zero water status. A rainwater collection system will store rainwater in tanks under the building and then filter it for hand-washing and drinking through a state-of-the-art water filtration system licensed by the State of Virginia’s Office of Drinking Water. The Center features waterless, composting toilets, and all grey water (wastewater generated from sinks and showers) will be channeled through a wetland constructed of native plants where natural processes will clean and return it to the underground aquifer.
For you commuters: “Beginning today, Burton Station Road will be closed so crews can install water and sewer lines.”
The following detours will be in effect:
– Eastbound traffic on Burton Station Road will be detoured down Miller Store Road to Bayside Road to Diamond Springs Road to Northampton Boulevard.
– Westbound traffic on Burton Station Road will be detoured down Northampton Boulevard to Diamond Springs Road to Bayside Road to Miller Store Road.
