Clean Rivers Project

Restoring Our Rivers

The Clean Rivers Project is DC Water's ongoing program to reduce combined sewer overflows into the District's waterways - the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers and Rock Creek. The Project is a massive infrastructure and support program designed to capture and clean water during heavy rainfalls before it ever reaches our rivers

Protecting Our District

With the Clean Rivers Project, DC Water will protect the public from possible harmful substances in our wastewater. It is also cleaning up our waterways, by reducing the pollutants that enter our rivers and can be harmful to our wildlife.
