During the month of March, the City’s contractor pulled approximately 100 tons of material from Hooff’s Run (in February we posted some photos of an engine block, fencing and rocks that had been removed). Pictured today is sediment removed from the Duke St. project location.

This maintenance will help ensure City storm sewers are operating at maximum capacity for rain and winter weather events. As a reminder, please stay out of the project work area and watch for truck traffic in the 1600 block of Duke St.

Alexandria Renew is conducting predator practices in addition to exorbitant fees. We always pay our bills on time. Due to an online scheduling/banking snafu, payment was apparently a day late. Guess what? We got a collection call. Can you believe it? I can't. This is Unbelievable.
What has Alexandria Renew done to design rates that mitigate some of the impacts seen across the Potomac by DC Water?
Sounds like a good idea
Do you all own that beautiful soccer field next to you?
How do I opted out of this service? If Im reading the correctly my water is being cleaned by Fairfax. What Alexandria city law states that I have pay for this? This service fee is higher than my actual water bill!
Hey Alexandria Renew Enterprises, I'm trying to switch to paperless billing statements and can't find anywhere on your website to do this. Can you provide a link to a form or phone number where I can make this happen? Thanks!
Pick up after yourself, and maybe some object that are lying around
