DC Water Cares

DC Water employees volunteer in, and contribute to, activities and fundraisers to improve the quality of life in the community. The following are just a few examples of how our employees get involved every day:

In the Community

DC Water employees staff dozens of community events every year, from large summer festivals to small neighborhood block parties. In addition to providing free cold tap water to participants, employees are on hand to answer any questions from customers and educate them about water and wastewater treatment. DC Water also sponsors some events that support our core mission, including river and environmental cleanup efforts. For more information please visit the Community Outreach section of our website.

Educational Activities

Stop by a high school in the District of Columbia and you may see DC Water employees speaking at career days or serving as judges at science competitions. In addition, DC Water employees encourage students to take tours of the Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant, as well as learn more about water treatment through the popular Sewer Science Program. Or for large events, you can look into our Water Conservation Program (both are described in more detail in the "Customer Care & Operations section of this site), which includes a rolling water-conservation display that allows DC Water plumbing experts to demonstrate ways to conserve water in your home, using the kitchen sink, shower, and toilet.

Bill Payment Assistance

DC Water offers the several programs to help eligible individuals pay their water and sewer bills if they are experiencing financial difficulties. Visit the Customer Assistance page in the "Customer Care & Operations" section to learn more.
