Second Play DC: Trinidad Playground Renovation Community Meeting Second Play DC: Trinidad Playground Renovation Community Meeting 3/6/14 @ 6:30pm
DC Water invites you to attend an upcoming public meeting on February 27, 2014 to learn more about the Northeast Boundary Tunnel Project (NEBT). The primary purpose of this 5-mile long, 23-feet diameter tunnel will be to help convey combined sewer overflows away from local water ways and also provide flood relief to chronic flood areas in the Northeast Boundary area of the District. A part of the tunnel is planned to be built under Mt. Olivet Rd NE. The meeting is a follow up to DC Water’s meeting and open house held on October 17, 2013.
Since the first public meeting, DC Water has completed the Environmental Assessment and would now like to share its contents with you and get your feedback. The meeting information is as follows:

As you likely know by now, Webb E.S. suffered a 2-alarm fire late Monday evening. The fire is under investigation, and early reports indicate that the building was not secure.
We have been pressuring the Department of General services over the past few months to increase the transparency of Webb’s property disposition. At this time, we do not know what the future of the building or the property will be; we have reached out to Councilmember McDuffie and will update you as new information becomes available.
Rather than attempt to paraphrase the coverage already out there, we will update the links below as we get them (please share any you’ve come across in the comments):
