Bloomingdale Neighbors of the First Street Tunnel Project:
We feel it is important to reach out to the Bloomingdale community to let you know that both Tom Lindberg and John Kennedy are leaving DC Water’s Clean Rivers program (DCCR)/First Street Tunnel Project.  Tom’s last day will be Friday, July 1; John’s last day will be Thursday, July 7.  Both men are returning to their respective home towns, and have enjoyed the opportunity to serve DC Water customers and contribute to new infrastructure in the District.   
Going forward, the DC Water primary contact will be Hadiah Jordan, DC Water Clean Rivers Public Outreach.  Hadiah will be taking over for Tom.   Her contact information follows:

Direct:  202-787-4717 

The Tunnel Forum meeting currently scheduled for Thursday, July 28 will continue as scheduled.  That meeting will be an opportunity for the First Street Tunnel team to update the community on the remaining schedule of activities for the First Street Tunnel construction contract, and discuss the utility contract work required in advance of the Northeast Boundary Tunnel Contract.  In addition, representatives from the DC Water Small Diameter Water Main project team will also be present to report on progress and future schedule, not the least of which includes the schedule for final paving in the neighborhood. 
We appreciate your participation in the meetings, your suggestions and recommendations, and your continued patience over two years of heavy construction.  You have endured a very unique and challenging project that will provide critical flood relief to the Bloomingdale neighborhood for generations to come. 
It has been a real pleasure and great honor to work with the dedicated citizens of Bloomingdale.  The two-way conversation we created with the neighborhood and your participation improved the project, and we are grateful. 
Please look us up if you’re ever in Boston or Oregon.  Our contact information is provided below:

Best wishes,
‒ Tom Lindberg
