Valley Run Assessment and Monitoring

Radnor Township wanted a better understanding of how the conversion of a parking lot into a parking garage, dormitory, and accessory buildings on the Villanova University campus might impact Valley Run. The Township asked RETTEW, as a neutral, third party, to assess the physical conditions and health of the stream and provide results in a written report. The assessment raised questions from citizens living in the Valley Run watershed as well as Villanova representatives. The Township held a public meeting during which RETTEW further explained the assessment and answered questions.

Because of RETTEW’s expertise in conducting stream assessments, coupled with our Civil/Municipal staff’s skill at relaying study results, we delivered unbiased findings in a professional manner. We understood the varied concerns of the audience and anticipated questions before they were asked. Our thorough, competent assessment also reflected favorably on the Township. The assessment provided a baseline of the stream’s condition and health, which will be used to compare against future findings in determining the stream’s health. The presentation also led to a discussion of steps the Township can take in its MS4 program to protect and improve Valley Run’s water quality.
