Subject: Meeting with DC Water this Thursday


The public meeting with DC Water has been confirmed for Thursday, December 13th at 7pm at DC Water's auditorium on Bryant Street between 2nd and 3rd Streets. The purpose of this meeting will be to discuss the implementation of DC Water's long term solution to flooding issues - the Northeast Boundary and Branch Tunnels (NEBBT) alignment. The NEBBT alignment is part of a 13-mile system of tunnels and diversion sewers throughout the city designed to help mitigate flooding and reduce combined sewer overflows to Rock Creek and the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers.  In preparation for the project, field investigation and survey work were slated to begin late last month.

This meeting is being co-hosted by the Bloomingdale Civic Association and ANC 5C 
Commissioners Mark Mueller and James Fournier.
