Anacostia Watershed and River Restoration


About the Project

Although it is one of the region’s most valuable resources, the Anacostia River is severely polluted.  DC Appleseed is working to clean up the Anacostia, an effort that will create jobs, spur economic development, and unleash new recreational opportunities.  We do this by advocating for innovative solutions to the Anacostia’s major pollution problems: stormwater runoff, sewer overflows, and toxic contamination.
