If You’ve Ever Considered Getting a Rain Barrel, You Might Qualify for a Free One from DC Water

Below if a flyer I got in the mail that outlines a program, funded by DC Water, whereby they will pay for a rail barrel or cistern to help with storm water runnoff that has been flooding Bloomingdale and LeDroit Park. In looking at the map of the flyer, a large portion of the Park View area qualifies for the program. Clicking on the image below will get you to a larger version of the map so you can check to see if you live in the shaded area. For those that prefer text, if you live east of Warder, the northern border if Rock Creek Church Road; if you live between Georgia and Warder, the northern boundary is Park Road; and if you live between Georgia and New Hampshire, the northern boundary is Newton Place.

More information about rain barrels and cisterns can be found at the District Department of the Environment Web site.

    DC is also offering up to $1200 in subsidies for people to install rain barrels, replace concrete with permeable surfaces, plant rain gardens, or replace turf with native plants. Read about it here: http://ddoe.dc.gov/service/riversmart-homes-overview

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future
    but I’m having a hard time making a decision
    between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely
    unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
