Pine Camp Creek is suffering from severely degraded and unsafe stream banks. Since the stream corridor borders Pine Camp Arts and Community Center, playgrounds, schools, Henderson Softball Complex, and the Northside Dog Park, it is often used for recreation and education. This project seeks to restore the stream, provide a stable environment that prevents future erosion, and provide a healthier habitat for wildlife, native vegetation, and the community.

Local artists ages 18 and older are invited to submit storm drain designs between now and Sunday, February 2, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. to promote the goals of the City of Richmond’s RVA Clean Water Plan. The plan is a five-year roadmap for reducing pollutant discharges into the James River, starting with wastewater, stormwater, and the combined sewer system. Four artists will be chosen to paint their art on storm drains in Richmond’s Shockoe Bottom.
