Through its Clean Rivers Project, DC Water is implementing the Drain the Rain Program, a pilot downspout disconnection program to manage stormwater runoff. Downspout disconnection helps control combined sewer overflows into the District’s rivers reducing stormwater runoff. It can also help you save money on water bills by reducing water usage, when a rain barrel is installed.
There are many homes within the Drain the Rain Pilot Program area (see blue shaded area on map above) that qualify for a FREE downspout disconnection and FREE rain barrel! Is your home within the Pilot Program Area? For more information on the pilot program, please visit www.dcwater.com/DrainTheRain
