    Thanks. It would be good to get photos, so if anyone else goes by and notes the pooled water, please take a picture. Members of the BAC have been in touch with NVRPA about this problem, and we will want to follow up with them.

    Taken this morning. There is a slight bit of pooling seen in the first two photos. These were taken just before 10 am.

    Thanks. Seems they cleared that drain, so the big, Sarah Bee eating puddle is gone.

    Still not replaced as of this morning (4/17). So much for getting to it the following week.

    This morning (5/14) I noticed that the railing on the W&OD under Carlin Springs Rd has been replaced. It might have happened during the day yesterday or day before since I do not recall checking yesterday or not (I was paying more attention to the people I was passing, whereas there were none today).

    So, I think this is now all completed.

    The culvert was clogged again today. I've let the NovaParks folks know, with pictures.Click image for larger version.

    I think most of these low bridges throughout the region just need to be ripped out and replaced with higher clearance bridges. I don't know if they were badly designed to start with or they've just been overwhelmed by the increase in runoff, but they're chronically troublesome. It certainly seems unlikely that the number of flood events will decrease in the future, so I hope plans on are on the drawing board. If only the money to do so was available. Stormwater tax maybe?

    What a difference a day makes. The entrance to the culvert was almost completely clogged with mud and debris and the exit seemed unimpacted from the rain yesterday and ready for more. I put my stormwater designer hat on and offered suggestions to NOVA Parks. First step is to identify responsibility for the culvert. Under a NOVA Parks trail but carrying water from Arlington.
