DC Water's Fort Stanton Reservoir Rehabilitation, Slope Stabilization, Environmental Restoration and Transfer of Jurisdiction is a two-phase project aimed at improving vital water infrastructure. The first phase involves the ongoing replacement of joint material inside one of two buried concrete water storage reservoirs located within Fort Stanton Park. The second phase is stabilization of a long-failed slope within the park.

Scope of Work
In carrying out this project, DC Water will conduct an environmental assessment (EA) which analyzes the impacts of the Fort Stanton Park slope embankment stabilization and restoration. A transfer in management jurisdiction regarding part of the reservoir compound from the National Park Service (NPS) to DC Water is also being proposed in the EA, as one of the existing reservoirs was never officially transferred from the NPS following its original construction.
Construction activities started in June 2011 and are scheduled for completion late December 2013.
