Review Type


Dear Marcotte;

During its meeting of 18 December, the Commission reviewed three projects submitted by the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority. These projects include: a concept design for a new equipment enclosure on the east side of the Main Pumping Station on 4th Street, SE; a concept design for new facades for the O Street, SE Pumping Station; and the final design for a new replacement East Side Pumping Station in Anacostia Park east of the D.C. General Hospital. While the Commission did not have a quorum of members at the meeting, those that were present made motions to approve each project as presented. Their motions will be formally confirmed at the Commission's meeting next month. In the meantime, we encourage your project teams to continue with the arrangements to build the new East Side Pumping Station, and to continue the development of the concept designs for the Main Pumping station equipment enclosure and the new facades for the 0 Street Station. For the two concept designs, we look forward to reviewing the final plans. Please submit these documents for review when ready and, as always, the staff is available should you or the design teams require additional guidance.
