In the Community

Engaging Prince George’s County Residential and Business Communities

The Clean Water Partnership is a Community Based Public Private Partnership (CBP3) between Prince Georges County and Corvias Solutions.  The Partnership provides flexibility in planning and execution of the scope and requirements of the Program; addresses community development needs and requirements; and instills long-term financial and regulatory commitments for integrating Green Infrastructure into the County’s stormwater Management Program.  Benefits of the CBP3 approach include the following:

Provides a flexible and adaptive management approach to support the County as the needs evolve;

Create opportunities for the “new green economy”, including job creation for construction, maintenance, and work force development;

Scale economies and efficiencies in procurement and a more collaborative approach in planning, design, and construction;

Provide stakeholders in the County with a clear and concise message on the CWP’s mission, up-to-date status reports, upcoming CWP plans and proposed timelines;

Broaden awareness by hosting town hall meetings and participating in community events and educational platforms.
