Impervious Area Charge Incentive Program
Effective October 1, 2013, DC Water customers are able to participate in the Clean Rivers Impervious Area Charge (CRIAC) Incentive Program. Customers who manage stormwater on their property through the use of approved best management practices such as rain gardens, rain barrels, pervious paving, green roofs, bioretention practices, and stormwater reuse methods may be eligible for up to a 4% discount on the impervious area charge that appears on their DC Water bill. DC Water's Clean Rivers CRIAC Program is an extension to the District Department of Energy and Environment's (DOEE's) RiverSmart Rewards Program that began in July 2013. Eligibility determinations are made by DOEE.
