Economic Benefits

What are the Economic Benefits of the SR3 Program?

Even in a region as large as the DC Metro Area, the economic impacts of a program of this magnitude can be felt both near and far.  To date, the program has provided work for many parties including:

  • Small, minority and local businesses (on both the design and construction sides).
  • Construction contractors specializing in sewer repair work along with work in environmentally sensitive areas (ESAs).
  • Environmental design consultants (along with a myriad of specialty subconsultants).

Along with the generation of numerous jobs that are helping to stimulate the local (and national) economy, improvements to WSSC Water’s sewer system provide the added benefit of reducing sewer backups (i.e., SSOs) and improving the overall quality of the local environment.
