DC Water’s newly opened Anacostia River Tunnel System was pressed into service in mid-April as heavy rains battered the District of Columbia.

During the storm, the new tunnel prevented approximately 170 million gallons of combined sewage and stormwater from being discharged to the Anacostia River.
