What We Do
Rehabilitation and Upgrade Of The Fort Reno Pumping Station
DC Water will perform improvements for the Fort Reno Pumping Station located in northwest DC. Originally constructed in 1978, the pumping station, along with Elevated Tank No. 2, serve the 4th high service area west of Rock Creek Park. Through this project, DC Water will improve water quality and system reliability, increase water pressure in some areas, and maintain adequate flows throughout the system.
