The City's combined sewer system comprises approximately 540 acres and is located in the Old Town area. During most wet weather events, combined sewage (mixture of wastewater and stormwater runoff) discharges through one of four outfalls into receiving waterways. The City is developing a plan to reduce the impacts of combined sewer discharges on the environment. More information about the City's combined sewer system and current planning efforts is provided below.


Complete Streets are streets for everyone. They are a vital part of livable, attractive communities and are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities. Complete Streets make it easy to cross the street, walk to shops, bicycle to work and access buses or train stations.


The Four Mile Run Restoration Project Is a joint venture to restore 2.3 miles of highly degraded stream within the hardened flood control channel. This page provides a brief history of the area and information on this planning process.

Many years of community planning have produced a vision for Potomac Yard, and a new Metrorail station along the Yellow and Blue lines is central to that vision. The FTA and the NPS issued their Records of Decision for the Potomac Yard Metrorail Station in Fall 2016; this being the last step in the review process under the National Environmental Policy Act. On September 10th, 2018, WMATA awarded a contract to the Potomac Yard Constructors JV for design and construction of the project.

RiverRenew is a solution to address Alexandria’s combined sewer overflows (CSOs) in order to meet legislation to improve water quality in Hooffs Run, Hunting Creek and the Potomac River. The legislation requires that CSOs from all combined sewer outfalls in the City be addressed by July 1, 2025.

Implementation of the Waterfront Small Area Plan is beginning with flood mitigation, as directed by Council and supported by the community as determined through the "Waterfront Phasing and Funding Plan" efforts.
