Environmental Assessment - RiverRenew Remediate Alexandria's Combined Sewer Outfalls
George Washington Memorial Parkway is a cooperating agency on an environment Assessment led by Alexandria Renew Enterprises, a public water utility, that will be released for the River ReNew project for a 30-day public Review. Through the EA, Alexandria Renew Enterprises proposes to construct a major stormwater tunnel to substantially reduce discharges of sewage mixed with rainwater from Alexandria, Virginia's combined sewer system to the Potomac River, Hooffs Run, and Hunting Creek. The majority of the proposed project takes place off National Park Service property. A small section of Jones Point Park and the bed of the Potomac River are the only two areas of NPS administered properties that would be impacted by the proposed project. The project is needed to comply with the Commonwealth of Virginia's 2017 legislation which requires that Alexandria's existing combined sewer outfalls be brought into compliance with Virginia law by July 1, 2025.
