The Prince George’s County Clean Water Partnership (CWP) — between Prince George’s County and a private company, Corvias — began in 2014 to retrofit 2,000 acres of property for the purposes of stormwater management. As part of this process, both partners agreed that an emphasis on providing employment for local, under-represented communities was necessary. Within a three-year period, completion of the project involved contracting 66 businesses, reaching almost 1,600 businesses, and generated over 200,000 hours of work. The project also blew past their goals for under-represented employment: target class participation was 40%, but actual participation was 87%; target participation of local businesses was 50%, but actual participation was 82%; targeted hours for local employment was 51%, but actual was 57%. In all, the program delivered on all 2,000 in half the time for half the price. Because of the success of the first project, the Clean Water Partnership between Prince George’s County and Corvias was extended 30 years for 4,000 acres with the same goals of hiring underrepresented community members as a requirement.
