Understanding the Anacostia’s Water Quality Report Card

During Earth Month AWS released the second annual State of the Anacostia River report card. The river received an overall water quality score of C- based on the parameters we assessed. But what does that really mean?

Our First Ever State of The River Report Card Released

The Anacostia Watershed Society and Anacostia Riverkeeper are proud to announce the release of our first ever State of the Anacostia River report card.  This annual report card is your guide to how well our communities, environmental groups, and, governments are doing in making the Anacostia River fishable and swimmable.  We will be mailing thousands of copies to members and elected officials starting this week.
