DC Water has established a Capitol Improvement Project that upgrades the watermain infrastructure and distribution system by targeting strategic areas of concern. This project will improve the infrastructure and increase reliability of water distribution in the DC area.
Fort Myer is responsible for eight (8) large valve replacements including various fittings and appurtenances at various DC locations. This work consists of replacing 12 inch to 30 inch gate and butterfly valves, various 6 inch air and drain blowoff assemblies, installation of pre-cast manholes, and roadway restoration which includes nearly 6,000 square yards of asphalt surface mill and overlay.
This project improves the water infrastructure which allows the flow of water to effectively be distributed to DC’s homes and businesses. These new valves will enable DC Water to reliably redirect water in the event of a water main break or to isolate the water mains if necessary.
On this project, FMCC is able to work with both DDOT and DC Water to complete the project, to further our goals of environmental stewardship, and play a vital role in improving our community.
