CWP Schools Program

Click here to learn about the 18 schools in Prince George’s County that will receive green stormwater retrofits to be used as teaching tools and outdoor classrooms to more than 15,000 students.


P3 Planning Approach

The CWP has developed a comprehensive approach for watershed restoration that looks for opportunities throughout the watershed, but focuses on the upper part of the drainage areas.


Local and Minority
Business Commitment

THE CWP is committed to partnering with Prince George’s County local and minority businesses to bolster economic development through strategic sourcing and bidding processes that promote engagement and participation throughout duration of the project.



Pre-qualifying is the first step in our procurement process and allows us to validate suppliers’ capabilities and ensure compliance with CWP program requirements.


Alternative Compliance Program

CWP Schools Tree Planting at Oxon Hill Middle School

During the fall planting season, students and faculty from the Prince George’s County Schools participating in the CWP Schools Program have an opportunity to participate in a volunteer tree planting session that will support the installed best management practice devices. These educational learning sessions take place during school hours and give students a hands-on experience in preserving our environment.

Working Together with Purpose

Thank you for sticking with us, finding something that works for both JA and The Clean Water Partnership, but most importantly, for the kids in the program. We’re fortunate to call you our partner, and to have the opportunity to work with and deepen our relationship with you in the coming years.

Vice President of Development / Junior Achievement of Greater Washington

Create an Increased Commercial Tax Base

This was an opportunity for us to put our unemployed to work, but more importantly, this was an opportunity to create an increased commercial tax base. Take diverse businesses, get them certified, create opportunities for them, and stop talking to them about the opportunities without having the means to fund them.

Roland Jones
Director / Prince George’s County Office of Central Services

An Economic Driver

This wasn’t just about meeting a mandate and this wasn’t just about stormwater. This was about community development. So we tried to engineer this program to be an economic driver, to help build a new industry in Prince Georges County that can be used everywhere.

Director / Department of the Environment for Prince George’s County

Nothing but Good Things to Say

I have nothing but good things to say about my relationship with Corvias. They have been extraordinarily helpful in directing me to the resources that I need and helping me organize things in a more objective way so that I can set some goals and increase my potential. Having my certification will expose me to more opportunities, I’m hopeful, and will help me to look for opportunities that are bigger than what I’m currently doing.

A Great Partnership

I met Corvias while attending a County seminar. The group was very easy to talk to, very easy to work with and knew what they wanted. They made no hesitation in approaching me once they found out I did custom printing, I was a County based business and I was MBE certified. They came right in and did business with me and it was a great partnership from the beginning.

CEO / Printing Express & Designs, LLC

Instrumental in Helping Us

Corvias was instrumental in helping us put together our certifications and complete the processes on my County based certifications. A lot of doors open once you get those certifications.

Owner / Faulkner Lawn Care

Another Level

Our partnership with Corvias Solutions has taken us to another level. It has permitted us to engage young people in stormwater management, problems and solutions, and in that engagement, we have been able to engage other communities around them.

President and CEO / End Time Harvest Ministries

Transformative Impact

This is an exciting project to be involved in because it’s moving beyond transactional interactions, and its transformative interactions. Corvias embodies that transformative impact on the community so this was just a perfect fit.

Executive Director / Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake

An Integral Partner

We felt that we were an integral partner in this process at the very beginning. They listened to us, we had dialogue back and forth, and they heard us, heard our hearts and took in what we shared. I had no idea that the outcome would be this way, other than what was shared with us, but knew that this would be something good. Not only for this church but for our community at large.

Forestville New Redeemer Baptist Church

Grateful and Thankful

We are very grateful and thankful for the project that was completed. From the communication to let me know what project would be done and the excellent work ethics of those who actually did the work to finish the project. We are just so pleased with the entire process. As the Pastor of Community Temple Church, I speak for the entire congregation when I say thank you very much from the bottom of our hearts for making our plan a reality.
