Rock Creek Green Infrastructure Project B

View all


Rock Creek Project B is part of DC Water's Clean Rivers GI Projects. It is the second GI project constructed in the Rock Creek Sewershed. The first green infrastructure project, Rock Creek Project A, was completed in 2018 in the Brightwood Park and Manor Park neighborhoods. DC Water’s Clean Rivers Projects will significantly reduce the level of pollution to the District’s waterways produced by the discharge of stormwater runoff and sanitary sewer flows, known as combined sewer overflows (CSOs).

Rock Creek Project B includes the construction of alley permeable pavement and bioretention sites. These practices manage stormwater by taking advantage of the earth's natural processes, such as allowing the water to infiltrate into the soil, evaporate into the air or be used by plants which transpire it as vapor. In addition to managing stormwater, GI contributes to beautifying the streetscape and making it more welcoming for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers.
