From an email:
“PoPville’s post on our geysering DC Water bills, and the comments it garnered, helped convince ANC 4D a community Water Forum was needed to support productive discussion on the city’s increasing water challenges.
Strange and frightening charges are turning up on our water bills.
And, as the heavy rainstorms last summer proved, DC residents are experiencing more-frequent dangerous flooding in our homes and streets.
As DC careens into a new, wetter climate era, what do these alarming trends portend for us? And what can we do about them?
Ask your questions, and get answers at the ANC 4D Water Forum:
Tuesday, Oct. 24, 6:30-8:30 pm
Washington Latin Public Charter School
5200 2nd St NW (between Ingraham and Hamilton)
This will be a calm, respectful, yet candid engagement with DC Water and DOEE representatives aimed at getting the real story behind all the bill increases and the environmental challenges ahead. We will also hear how City Council is researching these issues and what it is considering to do in response.
Nancy E. Roth,
Commissioner, ANC 4D”
