One of the most unique features of our Stronghold and Bloomingdale neighborhoods is the McMillan Sand Filtration site – a 25-acre green space and decommissioned water purification system dating from the early 1900′s. (Trust me, even though it doesn’t sound it, it’s pretty cool.)
DC Water has been doing a lot of work at the site to try and help mitigate the flooding problems of Bloomingdale and LeDroit Park. Since they “inconvenienced” the neighborhood for the past year or so, they offered to take the residents of Stronghold on a tour of their work, above ground and below.
Here are a few photos of that tour.
