D.C. Builds: Restoring our Rivers

The Potomac and Anacostia rivers have suffered years of raw sewage contamination due to combined sewer overflows. In order to address the issue, the city has begun constructing the first of two massive underground tunnels that will contain and transfer the contaminated runoff to the Blue Plains water treatment plant. Panelists discuss the planning and engineering challenges of the tunnel projects, which is the largest tunneling effort in the District since the Metrorail system was built, as well as city-wide efforts to install green infrastructure projects, such as rain gardens and green roofs. Panelists include: Carlton Ray, director, Clean Rivers Project, DC Water, and Tommy Wells, director, District Department of the Environment.
