This is pretty cool – from DDOE:

“The District of Columbia has begun work to “daylight” 1,600 linear feet of stream in northwest Washington, DC. This is the first time that stream daylighting, the act of uncovering waterways previously piped in an effort to restore natural habitat, has been undertaken in the District. The stream that is being restored originates from a spring on National Park Service land off Connecticut Avenue and flows to a bridge near the intersection of 36th Street, NW and Nevada Avenue, NW. At this point, the stream enters a pipe which flows beneath Broad Branch Road until the water comes again to the surface as Broad Branch, a tributary to Rock Creek.”
