Alexandria Renew Enterprises (AlexRenew), with cooperation from the National Park Service (NPS), today announced the release of the Environmental Assessment (EA) for RiverRenew, a major infrastructure program to prevent millions of gallons of pollution from reaching Alexandria’s waterways. RiverRenew is being implemented in response to a 2017 Virginia law that requires remediation of Alexandria’s four existing outfalls by July 1, 2025.
