Thank you to everyone who participated in last night`s productive and informative initial discussion with DDOE, DC Water, and DC Greenworks in preparation for the launch of the upcoming Bloomingdale / LeDroit Park community rain barrel deployment pilot program to mitigate the near-term risk of recurring flooding and sewage backups. For those unable to attend, we`ll have lots more information available to the public soon on how to participate in the effort.
In brief, the program will rapidly provide residents and businesses in the affected area stormwater audits, rain barrels, cisterns, and installation services -- all free of charge. Audits commence this upcoming Saturday (22 September 2012), and installations will begin by mid-October.
I`m refining the meeting minutes with the organizational participants and will share a copy of the final version in the next couple days.
In the mean time, please visit the associated DC Water web page for additional information.
Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions.
Have a great day,
ANC, SMD 5C03
