Quincy Run is a tributary that is near and dear to the AWS staff not only for its literal closeness to our offices but because it, like many other tributaries of the Anacostia, has quite the geography and history that works for/against it.

Quincy Run begins near MD 202 and the Baltimore/Washington Parkway and runs above ground* for just over a half mile.  It begins in neighborhoods but quickly changes over to a large wooded site that receives a lot of trash due to dumping and blowing trash from people littering the roadways and businesses around the area.
