Grant to a Washington, DC nonprofit, IHE, or private enterprise to develop a geodatabase and map that can locate and identify active springs and streams in the District that have been piped underground or otherwise covered. Funding is intended to provide information for future daylighting and restoration projects.
Daylighting is the process of restoring a stream, or a portion of a stream, to the open air that had been piped underground. Surface steams have better water quality in comparison to piped streams. Surface streams have more accessibility to sunlight, air, soil, and vegetation, all of which help process and remove pollutants. DOEE’s Watershed Protection Division uses daylighting as a tool to restore streams and create habitat.
