District, Federal Officials to Develop Flood Protection Plan for Downtown, National Mall

Washington, DC) Mayor Adrian M. Fenty on Wednesday announced the District will commit $2.5 million for design and construction work to improve the 17th Street levee as a part of a larger partnership with federal officials to produce a flood protection plan for Central Washington and the District.

“We’re taking immediate action to reduce the health and safety risk to the citizens, businesses, structures and institutions in the District,” said Mayor Fenty. “And it is critically important that we move through this process in lockstep with our federal partners.”
