Drivers using the eastbound Dulles Toll Road may think those pink and white clusters they see to the right just before the new Herndon Metrorail Station are summer flowers. Not so--they are special streamers being used to protect new grass and other vegetation from geese that sometimes rip up and eat the plantings before they mature. The plantings are in one of 14 new storm water ponds being built along the alignment of Phase 2 of the Silver Line by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. These ponds control stormwater and treat the water before releasing it into tributaries that lead to the Chesapeake Bay.
