On March 22, 2018, Delon Hampton & Associates attended the Grand Opening of DC Water's Clean River Tunnel's System. DC Water's Clean Rivers Project is celebrating the commissioning of the first phase of the Anacostia River Tunnel System. The tunnel, which is 23 feet inside diameter and more than 7 miles long, holds more than 100 million gallons and is designed to reduce combined sewer overflows to the Anacostia by approximately 80%. The project also includes a new 225 million gallon per day Wet Weather Treatment Facility at Blue Plains.
Delon Hampton & Associates is providing a broad range of engineering and program management services for this project including civil, structural, permitting, and program management services. We are proud to be involved in this important milestone to improving the Anacostia River.
