Green Infrastructure Design-Build Success Announced by DC Water

DC Water announced that five years since establishing an innovative $25 million Environmental Impact Bond – the first of its kind in the country – the design-build delivery of green infrastructure practices led by AKRF, Nitsch Engineering, and Anchor Construction have reduced stormwater runoff into Rock Creek by nearly 20 percent. EIB proceeds were used to construct 77 green infrastructure practices throughout Rock Creek A, the inaugural green infrastructure effort under DC Water’s Clean Rivers Project.
