Waterline Renewal Technologies

Washington D.C.’s Water Main Rehabilitation


As part of its Capital Improvement Program, DC Water is replacing existing 12-inch and smaller cast iron  mains in various locations throughout the city. These efforts will help improve water quality and system reliability, increase water pressure in some areas, and maintain adequate flows throughout the system. Construction for this project will occur on Rock Creek Church Road NW between Randolph Street NW and 5th Street NW, but will also include some work on portions of 4th Street NW and Quincy Street NW.  Construction is expected to begin this month and will be ongoing throughout April of 2017. Normal work hours are expected to be: 9:30am – 3:30pm, Monday through Friday.

Contractors may work at night or on weekends, depending on additional construction activities or due to inclement weather. If a planned temporary water service shut-off is necessary, affected residents will be notified 48 hours in advance. Service interruptions will be minimal. Construction may cause temporary discolored water or low pressure. If you experience discolored water, flush cold taps for 15 minutes.
