Good public policy is key to saving the Anacostia River. We can either make smart choices with our precious resources, or continue unstainable practices.
The Anacostia River is a complex, urban river that flows through several jurisdictions. Most of the river itself is in the District of Columbia, where the Federal Government has oversight authority and is the largest landowner. Most of the watershed, the land connected to the river, is in the State of Maryland, including Montgomery and Prince George's Counties. Each has a role to play in making the Anacostia River fishable and swimmable.
