On March 10, 2011, Wetland Studies and Solutions, Inc. (WSSI) and Reston Association (RA) received the 2010 Honor Award from the Community Appearance Alliance (CAA) of Northern Virginia for enhancing the appearance of Fairfax County through the stream restoration work completed at the Northern Virginia Stream Restoration Bank (NVSRB).

Located in Reston, Virginia, the NVSRB involves the restoration of 14 miles of degraded urban streams in Snakeden Branch, The Glade, and Colvin Run watersheds. Since construction began in 2008, over 7.5 miles of streams have been restored in the Snakeden Branch and The Glade watersheds. Restoration work began this past winter on streams in the Colvin Run watershed.
