This week, the District of Columbia Department of Energy & Environment (DOEE) marks Flood Awareness Week with a ribbon-cutting ceremony unveiling a public art project titled High Water Mark DC. The sculpture marks historic flooding levels in an at-risk area of the district. The project aims to help the public understand the risk of flooding and encourage resilience for the future.
The DOEE has resources available for residents to learn more about flood risks, including a flood risk portal that identifies flood zones and risk areas on a map. For more info on DOEE’s flood risk work, see here.
