EPA announces project in Norfolk

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A new environmental project in Norfolk will be a model for communities nationwide.

It’s is happening on the banks of the Lafayette River. The city and The Environmental Protection Agency will start restoring the Knitting Mill Creek wetlands, just off Mayflower Road in the Colonial Place neighborhood.

The feds are giving the city $60,000 for the project.

The goal is to help replenish the area, to help curb the effects of pollution and sea level rise. If this project is successful, the EPA will implement it in other coastal communities across the United States.
