Information submitted by Lilia Ledezma, DC Water's Green Infrastructure Public Outreach Coordinator, lilia.ledezma@dcwater.com, (202)787-4496

During the May 12 ANC-3B monthly meeting at Stoddert Elementary School (4001 Calvert Street NW), DC Water will present its next steps for Green Infrastructure (GI) implementation and seek feedback on potential locations to implement GI practices with the Potomac River Project A1 Area:

  • near Calvert Street NW to U Street NW and 42nd Street NW to Wisconsin Avenue NW
  • Whitehaven Parkway NW to Reservoir Road NW and 39th Street NW to 35th Street NW.

GI includes practices such as bioretention, pervious pavements, and rain barrels to allow stormwater to be filtered, slowed, and reduced before entering the combined sewer system.

The presentation begins at 7 pm.

Also, help DC Water implement a successful project by providing your feedback online. Please take the Potomac River Project A1 Online Survey by May 22: www.dcwater.com/PRGI-A1. Read more specifics about it here.
