DC Water Projects in our Area

DC Water is busy with projects in our general area. Here are two that I think are noteworthy.

Location of service line replacements, water main installation, and new hydrant replacements.

Just to the north of the neighborhood, DC Water is replacing existing 12-inch and smaller cast iron water mains in various locations. The efforts will help improve water quality and system reliability, increase water pressure in some area, and maintain adequate flows throughout the system. Constructions for this project is occurring on Rock Creek Church Road between Randolph Street and 5th Street, but will also include some work portions of 4th Street and Quincy Street.

The scope of work includes:

  • Installation of approximately 2,400 linear feet of 8-inch water mains;
  • Replacement of service lines (lead and/or other) in public space, as needed; and,
  • Replacement of fire hydrants and valves.

Expected completion date of this project is April 2016 (Read full news release here).

New hydrant(New hydrant located at Rock Creek Church Road and 5th Street, NW)

The other DC Water project is at Fairmont Street and Georgia Avenue, NW, which will involve the replacement of a 20-inch gate valve and a portion of the pipeline.

The project is scheduled to begin on March 21, 2016 and estimated to be completed by August 12, 2016. The project may involve lane closures and reduce area parking during some phases of construction.
