Temporary Water Shutoff
May 14, 2020
Greetings Neighbors.

Earlier today, while working on the Northeast Boundary Tunnel Project, DC Water’s contractor accidentally struck a 16” water line at the First Street Construction Site.

As a result, water service has been interrupted for resident homes between addresses 31 and 75 along westbound side of Rhode Island Avenue NW and the north side of T Street NW between First and 2nd Streets NW.

Technicians are now on the scene and accessing the situation to make the necessary repairs to restore service as soon as possible. We will update you as soon as we learn more about when service will be restored. If you have questions, please contact us at  or the NEBT Hotline 800-988-6151.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Project Details
The Northeast Boundary Tunnel is the largest component of the Clean Rivers Project. It begins south of RFK Stadium and will extend north to Rhode Island Avenue, NE and west to 6th Street, NW. When finished, the approximately five-mile-long tunnel segment will complete the Anacostia River Tunnel, a 13.1-mile-long tunnel that ends at the Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant. This project will significantly reduce chronic flooding in the areas it serves, as well as reduce the amount of combined sewer overflows into the Anacostia River.
