This is the result of the 1996 restoration project to turn open mud flats into vegetated wetlands to support aquatic plant and animal life.  The new project involved the beneficial use of dredged material to restore 42 acres of tidal freshwater wetlands in Kingman Lake, Washington, DC.

The material, approximately 190,000 cubic yards, would be hydraulically dredged from the federal navigation channel in the Anacostia River, District of Columbia and Prince Georges County, Maryland. Dredging was also required to create a tidal gut system and lagoon in Kingman Lake.

Following consolidation, the dredged material will be planted with approximately 720,000 plants. AquaDams® were used to isolate a 250 acre fill disposal area and control tidal flows. The fill material was needed to elevate the mud flats in order to grow special aquatic plants.
