RiverSmart Homes
 
RiverSmart Homes - This project will offer five innovative, yet proven, stormwater-reducing practices to homeowners. The practices include: rain barrel installation; planting of shade trees, rain gardens, and native landscaping; and replacing impervious surfaces with permeable ones.  Each participating home is eligible for up to $1,200 in landscape subsidies.  The items actually installed on a property will vary depending on what is deemed appropriate by a trained DDOE stormwater auditor or other trained professional and by what each homeowner chooses to install.  Nearly 300 District residences will receive RiverSmart Homes installations through these funds.  DDOE is partnering with the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay on this project. 
 
Project Timeline:  October 2009 October 2011
Funding:  $500,000
