On April 20, the District Department of the Environment is holding a public meeting to present the findings of the Anacostia River Sediment Project’s Phase One Remediation Investigation Report. The investigation assessed the types of pollution found in the Anacostia today as well as their concentrations at different points in the river. Data was collected by analyzing sediment samples and fish for a wide array of chemicals.

DDOE released the report on March 18 and is now actively soliciting input from the public. Outreach events such as these are necessary for authorities to get feedback and an important venue for interested parties to make their voices heard.

In addition to discussing the results from the most recent investigation, attendees will get the latest updates on what the District and its partners are doing to address contamination and legacy toxins trapped in the river.

The meeting will take place between 6:30-7:30, at the Earth Conservation Corps Pump House, 2000 Half St, SW, Washington, DC 20024.

For more information, please contact Dev Murali, DDOE Remedial Project Manager, (202) 548-4387 or dev.murali@dc.gov.

See you there!
