DPR understands the community concerns, therefore, sympathizes that access
to water has not been provided to the Kalorama Garden. We are aggressively
working to provide water to the site.
DPR did previously indicate that the water should be available on or before
May 20th. However, due unforeseen conditions, the previously communicated
date was not met. Our contractors are having difficulties in locating the
second water source.
Our contractors, representatives from WASA and DPR maintenance staff has
been on the site within the last two weeks. The most recent visit was this
Tuesday, May 24th. WASA representatives along with our contractors were on
the site in an attempt to locate the second water source. They were
unsuccessful. WAS has committed to researching site to locate the required
DPR has directed the contractor to begin to locate an alternate water
source if WASA's attempts are not successful. DPR will provide the
community with an update within the next two weeks.
Additionally, our contractors will be on site today to back fill the

A new waterline to the Kalorama garden was completed May 13th. It'll
hit 80 degrees today, but not one drop of water will flow through the
line. Why not? Because the waterline isn't hooked up to a functioning
WASA service line. Where's the disconnect? Somewhere very near the hole
with exposed pipe right next to the entrance to the kid's playground. On
the one hand, the garden hasn't had a functioning water line in over two
years, so it may take some archeology to find the water line. On the
other hand, the fact that not a single DPR or WASA employee has been on
site in the last two weeks might also be a factor, don't you think?
So Councilman, what's it going to take to finish a simple plumbing
job? Maybe some kid falling into the hole?
