First DC Water Town Hall in Ward 2 Tuesday Night



    First DC Water Town Hall in Ward 2 Tuesday Night

    Officials from DC Water and the District will host the first of eight town hall meetings to answer questions and hear from the public Tuesday night.

    Likely on the agenda: Skyrocketing water bills and the controversial Clean Rivers fee, which has been the subject of a series of News4 I-Team investigations.

    DC Water also proposed raising the sewer rate customers pay by 13 percent next year.

    The DC Water Board will hold a formal public hearing on that in May, but the utility has coordinated with councilmembers to hold a town hall meeting in each ward during the next few weeks.

    The first meeting is in Ward 2 at the School Without Walls at Francis Stevens on N Street in Northwest.

    The town halls are scheduled from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
