Bloomingdale Small Diameter Water Main Replacement Project Public Informational Meeting

December 1, 2016

As part of its Capital Improvement Program DC Water has begun the replacement of the existing 8 and 12-inch cast iron water mains in the Bloomingdale area. These efforts will improve water quality, system reliability, and increase water pressure.

The scope of work also includes replacing service lines (lead and/or other) in public space, at no cost to area homeowners. Additionally, for those properties with lead service lines on their private property DC Water can simultaneously replace the service lines, if the homeowner elects to participate. However, private side service line replacement will be the financial responsibility of the homeowner.

Don’t miss this opportunity to receive more information on this project and learn how you can participate in the lead service line replacement program. Please see meeting information below:

Thursday, December 8, 2016 @ 7:00pm to 8:30pm
St. George's Episcopal Church
160 U Street NW 
Washington, D.C. 20001

WBJ: "McMillan groundbreaking set for next week, but project still faces court challenge"

Click on the link to read the entire Washington Business Journal post:


Michael Neibauer
Associate Editor
Washington Business Journal

The $720 million redevelopment of the McMillan Sand Filtration Plant begins next week. Or, at least, that's when city officials will put ceremonial shovels to dirt.
On Dec. 7 at 11 a.m., the District announced Wednesday, Mayor Muriel Bowser and Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development Brian Kenner will host a groundbreaking for the controversial 25-acre "project delivering jobs, housing, neighborhood-serving retail, a large public park and community center, health care facilities" and more, the city said.
The invitation makes no mention of Vision McMillan Partners -- the team of EYA, Jair Lynch Real Estate Partners and Trammell Crow -- which will actually tackle the vertical McMillan development.
