I wanted to make sure that Park View residents were aware that much of the neighborhood falls within the Bloomingdale Sewershed, and thereby qualifies for Bloomingdale Sewershed Rebates. The program offers eligible residents located in the sewershed special incentives to reduce stormwater runoff. The goal of the program is to help prevent the severe flooding that the Bloomingdale and LeDroit Park neighborhoods have experienced in recent years.

Rebates exist for impervious pavement removal, installing pervious pavers, and green roofs. The rebate program ends on September 21, 2015, so if you are interested you can read all about it and get the appropriate forms at the DOEE Bloomingdale Sewershed Rebate Webpage.

The Website states that this program is available for single-family homes, condominiums, co-ops, apartments, locally-owned businesses, and houses of worship within the Bloomingdale Sewershed area.
