Piney Branch

Piney Branch is a tributary of Rock Creek in Washington, D. C, it is the largest tributary located within the Washington city limits. Located in the Northwest quadrant of Washington, D. C. the stream flows next to Piney Branch Parkway and empties into Rock Creek near the intersection of the parkway and Beach Drive, inside Rock Creek Park. Rock Creek drains to the Potomac River. Piney Branch is a first order stream with a surface length of 0.75 miles. It is about 12 feet wide and 4 inches deep, it is the largest tributary located within the Washington city limits. Piney Branch drains a watershed of about 0.48 square miles. Its surface stream drainage is augmented by four combined sewer systems. About 5 percent of the watershed consists of forested parkland near its surface stream; the rest of the area is residential, with some light industrial zones. The creek is listed as polluted by 10 chemicals and four metals: lead, copper and arsenic, it is spanned by the country's first parabolic arch bridge. In prehistoric times, the creek's valley was a source of quartzite cobbles for toolmaking.

One quarry site is located at the bluffs overlooking Piney Branch from the north, about 30 feet below the summit of a southeast-facing hill. Dubbed the "Piney Branch Quarry Site", it was first examined by archeologist William Henry Holmes in 1889 and 1890. Another investigation begin in 2006 revealed quartzite debitage and broken turtleback “preforms,” and half of a large ax. In the mid-1800s, the creek's valley was the location of the first road through the area that would become Rock Creek Park. Called Piney Branch Road or 14th Street Road, the narrow country way went north from the Mount Pleasant neighborhood down into the valley, across a rickety bridge just west of today's 16th Street Bridge climbed up to the present-day neighborhood of Crestwood. Funding to build the Piney Branch Parkway, which runs along the creek for most of its length, was "authorized in 1907, but not built until the mid-1930s when funding and workers became available through the New Deal."In 2014, the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority began design work on the Piney Branch Trunk Sewer Rehabilitation Project, a series of repairs and improvements to the combined sewer system that discharges into the creek.

Composed of 8- to 10-foot brick and concrete pipes, the Piney Branch Trunk Sewer is one of the city's major trunk sewers. Project design was slated to start in last one year; as of early 2016, work was to begin in 2017 and last until 2019. List of rivers of Washington, D. C.
