RiverSmart Washington is an environmental initiative designed to combine attractive, cost-effective landscaping with innovative streetscaping methods to help reduce stormwater pollution in Rock Creek. The program is currently being tested in two local neighborhoods and, if successful, may be replicated throughout the District. The RiverSmart Washington program operates under a public-private sector partnership led by the District Department of the Environment (DDOE), the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), Rock Creek Conservancy (formerly FORCE--Friends of Rock Creek's Environment), DC Water, LimnoTech, and Casey Trees.
