This 8-minute video by EarthEcho International—featuring underground construction and a kayaking expedition into the bowels of a combined sewer—highlights the water-quality challenges of Washington, DC and what DC Water is doing about it.
Why is it relevant to Cleveland? It's a tale that reflects the same obstacles and solutions we face in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio:
- Lots of impervious surface.
- Combined sewers that discharge billions of gallons of waste into our environment every year.
- Extensive tunnel projects to prevent those overflows.
- Opportunities for green infrastructure as smart stormwater solutions.
