Green Up DC

Green Up DC offers the residents of Washington, D.C. a platform and tools to help reduce the amount of contaminants that enter the Chesapeake Bay.  Residents and business owners may plan new stormwater projects such as green roofs, pervious pavement, and rain barrels.  One key advantage of the site - - resident can also access information about financial subsidies and rebates, register installed projects, and view maps of other property owners' projects.

The program also supports energy conservation projects.  Approximately 390 solar electric projects have been completed.

The graphics are tremendous - - from the status dashboards that display high-level program metrics or key performance indicators to the the interactive web map created by ESRI ArcGIS.  Existing projects are mapped so users can identify other projects installed in their neighborhood.  Think sustainability meets social media - - partners CH2M Hill and Critigen have done a great job with this!!
