Program Overview:

The District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority (DCWASA) was created by District law in 1996, with the approval of the United States Congress, as an independent authority of the District Government with a separate legal existence. In 2010 the Authority rebranded and became “D.C. Water (Water Is Life). DC Water provides more than 681,000 residents and 21.3 million annual visitors in the District of Columbia with retail water and wastewater (sewer) service. With a total service area of approximately 725 square miles, DC Water also treats wastewater for approximately 1.6 million people in neighboring jurisdictions, including Montgomery and Prince George’s counties in Maryland and Fairfax and Loudoun counties in Virginia.

During recent Fiscal Year DC Water pumped an average of more than 99 million gallons of water per day. In addition, DC Water stores 61 million gallons of treated water at its eight facilities. The Washington Aqueduct stores an additional 49 million gallons. DC Water delivers water through 1,350 miles of interconnected pipes, four pumping stations, five reservoirs, three water tanks, 43,860 valves, and 9,510 fire hydrants.

DC Water operates 1,900 miles of sanitary and combined sewers, 160 flow meters, nine wastewater pumping stations, 16 stormwater pumping stations, 12 inflatable dams and a swirl facility. Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant is located at the southernmost tip of the District, covering more than 150 acres along the Potomac River.
