The Anacostia River: Making Connections
For decades, heavy industrial pollution has infiltrated the waters of the Anacostia River, which cuts right through the heart of Washington DC. A broad coalition of city and US officials, nonprofits and corporations are working hard to reverse those effects. This issue is seen by many as one of environmental justice as the river not only divides the city geographically but socioeconomically and culturally as well. Anacostia River: Making Connections takes a hard look at the issues involved, the progress thus far and the stakes involved in making the river fishable and swimmable for future generations.
