Greetings:

In following my email to you last week regarding our Irving Street Green Infrastructure Project, scheduled to start next Monday, I want to share with you the attached document that is now being disseminated to customers throughout the project area. This document serves a dual purpose, as it will make customers aware of the project, its environmental benefits and construction impacts, while also inviting those interested in a formal presentation on the project to join DC Water on this coming Saturday, November 23rd at Wangari Gardens, the designated staging area for the project during construction. Customers will have an opportunity to present their questions to DC Water regarding construction impacts, and can also review construction plans.

While the handout is being hand delivered door-to-door, DC Water humbly asks for your assistance in spreading the word regarding the project and meeting.  Please feel free to post this informational door hanger/meeting notice to your respective websites, community list serves, blogs, and other social media. We hope to see you at the meeting as well. Please come out and join us!

Thanks again, and please let me know if you have any questions

Greetings:

By way of this email I am sharing with you important information regarding our Irving Street Green Infrastructure project.

As part of DC Water’s Clean Rivers Project and medium-term flood mitigation efforts in the Bloomingdale neighborhood, we will be installing a series of bioretention cells along Irving Street, between Michigan Avenue and North Capitol Street. These cells will help reduce storm-water runoff through capture, infiltration and treatment before it enters the sewer system. The Irving Street Green Infrastructure project was previously discussed in conjunction with the First Street Tunnel Project during briefings with Councilmember McDuffie and presentations to ANC 5E, Bloomingdale and Stronghold Civic Associations.

The proposed schedule of work for this project is November 2013 through April 2014, and much of the work will be performed during daytime hours, from 7:00am – 7:00pm.

This and other important information on the project may be found on the attached project information sheet, which will be made available on DC Water’s website soon. We also ask that you please post this project information to your respective community list serves, blogs, and other social media.

Thanks much, and please let me know if you have any questions.

Have a wonderful day!
