Prepare an EA for Rehabilitation of Fort Stanton Park Reservoir and Transfer of Jurisdiction

National Capital Parks - East » Prepare an EA for Rehabilitation of Fort Stanton Park Reservoir and Transfer of Jurisdiction » Document List

Dear Park Neighbors and Other Interested Persons:

The National Park Service (NPS) and the District of Columbia Water & Sewer Authority (DC WASA) are coordinating on the preparation of Environmental Assessment (EA) for work associated with two operating reservoirs located in Fort Stanton Park in Southeast Washington, DC. The EA will address the stabilization and restoration of a slope within Fort Stanton Park that has failed on multiple occasions. The site also has a 30-inch water main that provides water service to one hundred thousand District residents. DC WASA proposes to perform the work as part of a broader project involving rehabilitation of one of two reservoirs. A transfer of management jurisdiction of part of the reservoir compound from NPS to DC WASA is also proposed in the EA (one of the two existing reservoirs is located on NPS property, having never been officially transferred to DC WASA).

We are currently conducting scoping for this proposed action and invite you to provide comments or other feedback to assist in identifying the potential issues and/or concerns that should be addressed in the EA. The NPS will be accepting comments until December 4, 2009.

You may also submit comments or other feedback by writing to:
