Join us: September Listening Sessions and Scoping Meeting

Community members are invited to learn more about RiverRenew and share feedback. 

In late June 2018, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality approved a plan to prevent millions of gallons of sewage mixed with rainwater from being discharged to Alexandria’s waterways via four existing outfalls. The plan, referred to as Option B+, features a new tunnel system coupled with upgrades to AlexRenew’s Water Resource Recovery Facility to capture and treat the additional flows delivered during rain events. Implementation of this plan has been referred to as Alexandria’s Wet Weather Program. In July 2018, the Wet Weather Program moniker was changed to “RiverRenew” to highlight the positive outcomes for Alexandria’s waterways as a result of the approved plan.

RiverRenew is hosting three Community Listening Sessions in September to discuss the proposed tunnel system with the community. These listening sessions are intended to bring the community up to speed on the proposed tunnel routes and facility locations, solicit feedback, and optimize the design to minimize impacts while achieving RiverRenew’s objectives.

Join the discussion.

We invite you to attend any or all of the community events below. The RiverRenew team will be on hand to discuss the program, answer your questions and receive your comments.
