DC Water Invites Community to Visit New Consolidated Office Space
May 29, 2019
DC Water is holding an open house and inviting neighbors and community members to visit its new headquarters in Southeast. DC Water staff moved into the building at the end of 2018 to consolidate functions from several facilities under one roof on DC Water property. The Authority was able to move some departments out of leased office space, saving on operating costs. The new location also makes DC Water more accessible to the public.
The public is invited to visit the building and participate in a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony and tours of the building. Visuals will include DC Water’s 24-hour Emergency Command Center, rooftop views along the Anacostia River, infrastructure presentations and tabling by DC Water departments.
Only certain parts of the building will be accessible on the tours.
