The U.S Army Corps of Engineers Baltimore District is restoring 45 acres of wetlands within Kingman Lake in the District of Columbia through the placement of dredged material from the main stem Anacostia River. Conceptual design of the wetland was first developed based on knowledge of the hydrologic and hydraulic requirements of natural tidal freshwater marshes and recently completed wetland restoration projects in the region. A hydrodynamic model is being used to refine conceptual design parameters and to optimize wetland geometry.
