For updates on the issue of waste disposal from the Dalecarlia Sedimentation Basins, check out the Washington Aqueduct website and the Environmental Impact Statement.

On Friday, October 28, 2005, Colonel Robert J. Davis, the District Engineer for Baltimore District, US Army Corps of Engineers, signed the Record of Decision for the proposed Washington Aqueduct Residuals Management Process.

Alternative E as described in the final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was selected. This alternative collects the residuals in a liquid form from the sedimentation basins at the Dalecarlia and Georgetown sites and sends them to a dewatering facility to be built to the north of Little Falls Road on the grounds of the Dalecarlia Reservoir.
