Leaders: Anacostia Watershed Society
The AWS Headquarters are located at the historic George Washington House (circa 1752). Years of road realignments had created poor drainage patterns throughout the site. AWS installed permeable paving, a rainwater cistern, brick and dry stream channels, and rain gardens. The project demonstrates how sustainable storm water management can be successfully incorporated within historic sites challenged with a limited budget and very restrictive site constraints.
