Waterway to 2025
While we can never return the Anacostia River Watershed to the pristine condition that Captain John Smith saw in 1608, we know that by stopping new pollution, restoring natural systems and rebuilding our community’s relationship to River we can restore the Anacostia to a fishable and swimmable healthy urban river by 2025.
Our plan to achieve that goal, the Waterway to 2025, has been distributed to policy makers, elected officials, community leaders and others across the watershed. We’re pleased to share it with you, here.
The Anacostia River has regained its significance as one of the two iconic rivers of the nation’s capital.
