(Roanoke County, VA - May 24, 2021) Roanoke County’s Department of Development Services has selected the Saint Francis Service Dogs Pavilion project, located at 8232 Enon Drive, Hollins, VA, as the next recipient of the Stormwater Clean Award.
Stacey Lucas and Kim Roenberger of Lionberger Construction have been proactive regarding the site's erosion and sediment control measures throughout the project. Any necessary corrections have been swiftly executed. This has made for a great project and protection of downstream waterways from sediment-laden stormwater runoff.
Land development in Roanoke County presents difficult challenges in the management of stormwater runoff due to the very steep slopes and highly erodible soils in the region. Because of these challenges, Roanoke County created the Contractor Appreciation Program to recognize land-disturbing contractors who conduct exemplary work within the County to protect its natural water resources.
Roanoke County inspectors submit candidate projects to a selection committee that meets monthly to evaluate the projects for recognition. Selected projects are recognized with a permanent banner at the project site, as well as recognition in the department’s newsletter, and on the County’s website.
