AWS Releases 2014 Anacostia River Report Card & State of the River Report

AWS staff regularly monitors the water quality of the Anacostia River and, from our data, creates a report card which is your guide to how well our communities, environmental groups, and governments are meeting the goal of a fishable and swimmable Anacostia River, per the terms of the Clean Water Act. Our goal is to provide a benchmark of progress, create accountability for decision makers entrusted with the health of the river, and point to the most effective solutions to restore it.

Despite again earning a failing grade for water quality, we know that the Anacostia River can be made fishable and swimmable by 2025 and have plans in place to accomplish that goal.

While the river earned an F in water quality, the watershed communities earned a C- for overall effort and commitment to cleanup and restore the river. We are thrilled that government agencies, nonprofit organizations and the private sector are working to make the river accessible and desirable for boating, riverside recreation and economic development.

To learn more about the current state of the river and how we can all work together to make it fishable and swimmable by 2025, check out the 2014 Anacostia River Report Card.

As part of the organization’s 25th Anniversary this year, AWS has also produced a State of the River Report on the people, history and stories of the river that includes a timeline and roadmap for a clean river by 2025.

Come visit the banks to see what the river has to offer. Let’s stand together and make our voices heard in efforts to restore this natural wonder!

Doing something these days is smarter than keeping on to the standing quo. The tarot card is 1 of the most traditional forms of divination. This one doesn't require any psychic capability.
