DC Water

DC Water's got a new name and a new look, but faces familiar issues around water safety. We speak with the agency's general manager.

DC Water hopes to cultivate a more visible image with a new name and logo. But the agency is facing some old issues, including lead in the city's drinking water and miles of century-old pipes. We speak with DC Water's general manager George Hawkins about water safety, service, and what customers can expect in future water bills.
