DC Water is changing the way stormwater is managed
in the most important metropolis in the country.
Under George Hawkin’s leadership DC Water is changing from strictly gray tunnels to large scale green infrastructure. It is doing so carefully and thoughtfully, with an eye towards creating an infrastructure that works, brings benefits to the community, especially jobs, and is an investment in the region’s future. Along with the Beyond Tunnel Vision talk he gave to over 100 people at the Phipp’s lecture hall, George met with key leaders in the ALCOSAN decision making process and was on WESA’s Essential Pittsburgh where he shared his vision and strategy. If a green infrastructure can be done in DC, why can it not be done in Pittsburgh?
