What We Do
B Street/New Jersey Avenue Trunk Sewer Rehabilitation Project
The District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority (DC Water) is performing sewer rehabilitation projects throughout the city as part of its Capital Improvement Program. Defined by the 2009 Sewer System Facility Plan, these efforts include rehabilitation of the B Street/New Jersey Avenue Trunk Sewer. As its brick and concrete pipes vary in diameter from 6 feet to 18 feet, the B Street/New Jersey Avenue Trunk Sewer exists as one of the city's major trunk sewers. Locations of this arterial pipe include the Watergate Complex, the John F. Kennedy Center NW, Constitution Avenue NW, the National Mall, Independence Avenue SW and New Jersey Avenue SE.
In preparation for this project, there will be field investigation work in order to further assess the project site.

Scope of Work
In preparation for rehabilitation of the B Street/New Jersey Avenue Trunk Sewer, field investigation work items will include site surveys, manhole inspections and ground penetrating radar. This work is needed to assess the condition of the sewer and to help define the design phase of the project.
Field investigation activities for this project are ongoing, and are scheduled for completion by September 2013.
