In 2016, DC Water (utility) issued Environmental Impact Bonds (EIB) "to fund green infrastructure (GI) projects to capture and infiltrate runoff ... and thereby improve the health of waterways."

Several years later, DC Water declared the EIB a success, and noted that EIBs had been issues in other localities like Atlanta and Hampton, Virginia.
