National Green Infrastructure Certification Program

Commitment by

DC Water

In 2016, DC Water committed to developing the National Green Infrastructure Certification Program (NGICP), which will develop training programs and certification criteria for workers performing construction, operation and maintenance of Green Infrastructure (GI). DC Water has collaborated with the Water Environment Federation (WEF) to develop the program. NGICP will ensure competent GI staff while providing livable wages, professional growth, and job portability. Additionally, it will raise the level of professionalism in the sector for those who construct, inspect, and maintain GI through a robust, national, green infrastructure training and certification program. The certification program will develop need-to-know criteria, curriculum, exams, website and certification tracking. The NGICP will support jobs that produce a living wage for the underserved in local Washington, D.C. communities and standardize the construction, operation and maintenance of GI to improve water quality.
