Meet our fish friends living in the forebay at the end of our water treatment process where the 💧 is highly oxygenated.

Before the 1970s, we had a direct connection to the Potomac River and Carp could swim back and forth. When filters were installed the trapped fish thrived!

The rainy weather this month put our new tunnels to the test again. The data's in - the system captured over 200 MILLION gals of combined sewage that otherwise would have ended up in the Anacostia, enough to fill RFK Stadium to the top! Not to mention all the trash collected.

After decades of flooding in Bloomingdale, DC Water’s flood control efforts stem the tide

The DC Water Clean Rivers tunnel system are working, essentially eliminating generations of flooding in the Bloomingdale neighborhood. Thank you Sam Ford and ABC 7 News - WJLA for telling this story.

Flooding has been a longtime problem in Northwest D. C. ’s Bloomingdale neighborhood. For decades we saw roads flooded and basements filling with a nasty mixture of floodwater and sewage. As Tropical Storm Isaias ripped through the area Tuesday, water gushed down streets, through underpasses,....

Rock Creek Conservancy

Every day, harmful pathogens flow into Rock Creek Park waterways. The Rock Creek Conservancy is helping by disconnecting DC resident's downspouts so that water flows into a rain barrel or into the soil. Water is filtered through the soil and sewage overflows are less likely to occur. Stay safe and dry this summer! 😎
