bloomingdale civic association meeting on monday the 17th

remember, monday at 7:00 p.m., it's the monthly meeting of the bloomingdale civic association (at st. george's episcopal church on the corner of 2nd and U streets)

here's a reminder from association president cassandra costley:

Please join us at 7:00 p.m. St. Georges Episcopal Church (160 U St, NW). We will host the District's Water and Sewer Authority's (WASA) public forum on its 20-Year Plan to Control Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO). Some of Bloomingdale's newer neighbors may not be aware that this community's failing CSO system has been the cause of significant flooding and property damage in this neighborhood. So, you can learn what has been done and is in store for Bloomingdale. This meeting is also your opportunity to learn more about the $2.2 billion plan to control pollution in the Potomac and Anacostia rivers and Rock Creek. WASA and its customers - you - are spending more than $2 billion to reduce 96 percent of the combined sewer overflows (CSOs) in our waterways. Please attend this meeting to learn more about this water pollution control program, flooding, share your views, and find out how you can help reduce pollution in our area creeks and rivers and control flooding.
