Imagine not being able to play in Rock Creek or in your neighborhood stream. After decades of pollution from toxic sites along the Anacostia River, that's the scenario for citizens who wish to use the Anacostia. In February, a coalition of groups came together to form United for a Healthy Anacostia River. This coalition intends to raise public awareness of the Anacostia's toxics problem and keep pressure on our local government officials not to let the cleanup fall behind.
To learn more about the problem and how you can help, go here and visit the website of United for a Healthy Anacostia River. And sign the petition urging the District to make cleaning up the toxins in the river a top priority.
