Subject: RE: Invitation to DC Water's Northeast Boundary Tunnel Project Public Meeting and Open House

By now, you have probably received information on our upcoming public meeting and open house for the Northeast Boundary Tunnel portion of our Clean Rivers Project through a series of media and outreach measures including robo-calls, mailed informational flyers, online press release, Twitter, Facebook and neighborhood list serve postings. This email seeks to do the same, provide you important information on the meeting while extending a formal invitation for you to attend.
The 5-mile long, 23-ft. diameter tunnel is designed to help convey combined-sewer overflows away from local waterways and also provide flood relief to chronic flood areas in the Northeast Boundary area of the District.
As you will see on the attached flyer, the main purpose for the meeting will be to share information on the Northeast Boundary Tunnel Project in the form of a presentation and series of project display boards and receive public comments on the project that may be included in the following Environmental Assessment for the project. Please understand this is a critical public involvement process for the project, and DC Water needs to hear from you!
The date, time and location of the meeting are as follows:
WHEN: Thursday, October 17, 2013, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
WHERE: McKinley Technology High School, 151 T Street, NE, Washington, DC 20002
Finally, an interactive web page has been created to view more detailed information on the Northeast Boundary Tunnel Project and also to submit comments on the project and/or meeting online. You may find the web page at:
Thanks much for your time, and we hope to see you all at the meeting on October 17!!
