Resources for Multi-Family Building Residents and Managers

The majority of these buildings were built prior to 1978. The District Department of the Environment (DDOE) offers a variety of resources and information to help multi-family buildings conserve water and energy, reduce stormwater runoff, abate lead and asbestos hazards, and minimize pesticide use.
