The Potomac River has seen plenty of changes since George Washington was born within its basin 283 years ago. Perhaps the biggest change is the degree to which it’s become polluted with raw sewage. In D.C. Builds: Restoring our Rivers, a group of panelists will discuss how two massive tunnels will be constructed to help contain and transfer the contaminated waters from the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers to a water treatment plant. These two projects will be the largest tunneling efforts in D.C. since the Metrorail system was built, and to say they present engineering challenges would be an understatement. Join Carlton Ray of the Clean Rivers Project and Tommy Wells of the District Department of the Environment as they discuss at the National Building Museum just what this massive undertaking entails.
