There has always been a heightened awareness to protect the District's environment and the latest District-wide efforts aimed at the sewer infrastructure incorporates “green’ initiatives in every possible venue of governmental operations. Green infrastructure initiatives can feature a variety of Low Impact Development (LID) technologies including green rooftops, tree planting, rain gardens, vegetative swales, infiltration trenches and pocket wetlands. The District of Columbia's Water & Sewer Authority (WASA) is the lead agency for a number of urban watershed investigations in the District aimed at improving the sewer system infrastructure through the use of LID technologies. This paper presents the results of one of WASA's “green’ initiatives, a rain garden pilot project, constructed as part of the District's Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Nine Minimum Controls Three – Party Consent Decree.
