Work on Irving Street Green Infrastruction Project to Begin November 25

Recently, DC Water alerted me that they have an infrastructure project that will involve Irving Street east of Park Place. It will begin on November 25th and extend until April 2014. The project is intended to help reduce flooding in Bloomingdale. More information on the installation of the bioretention cells is available on DC Water’s project information sheet and posted below.

Bioretention Locations

As part of DC Water’s Clean Rivers Project and medium-term flood mitigation efforts in the Bloomingdale neighborhood, we will be installing a series of bioretention cells along Irving Street, between Michigan Avenue and North Capitol Street. These cells will help reduce storm-water runoff through capture, infiltration and treatment before it enters the sewer system. The Irving Street Green Infrastructure project was previously discussed in conjunction with the First Street Tunnel Project during briefings with Councilmember McDuffie and presentations to ANC 5E, Bloomingdale and Stronghold Civic Associations.

The proposed schedule of work for this project is November 2013 through April 2014, and much of the work will be performed during daytime hours, from 7:00am – 7:00pm.

This and other important information on the project may be found on the attached project information sheet, which will be made available on DC Water’s website in the coming weeks.
