The District Department of the Environment (DDOE) rolled out new regulations last week aimed at improving stormwater management at large development sites in the District.
More than a billion gallons of stormwater and sewage flow into the District of Columbia's rivers every year, and there is a belief that George Hawkins is the man to fix it.
A D.C. lawmaker is calling on the city to establish an emergency relief fund for residents of the Bloomingdale neighborhood reeling from flood damage after fierce rains backed up their outdated sewer once again during the Labor Day weekend.
George Hawkins, general manager of D.C. Water and a self-proclaimed champion of clean rivers, argued that the requirements, if implemented, would hamper water quality projects on federal land while delivering insufficient benefit.
Mr. Hawkins denies bypassing Mr. Garvin — a major "process foul" in EPA parlance — but during a recent two-hour interview he conceded, "We communicate with EPA [headquarters] more than other agencies because they're in D.C. Plus, I know Lisa from New Jersey."
