CAPITOL PUMPHOUSE HISTORY

Spurred by a partnership with PEPCO, a 20-year lease from the Department of the Interior, and a $600,000 Department of Housing Brownfields Redevelopment Grant, Earth Conservation Corps converted the abandoned lead filled PEPCO Pumphouse on Buzzard Point into the center of community enterprise, environmental restoration and community development now known as the Monique Johnson Anacostia River Center. Development included the reclamation of the 1 ½ acre site into a public park and completion of the first demonstration segment of the Anacostia River Walk.
