The Potomac: The Nation's Most Endangered River?

The Potomac: The Nation's Most Endangered River?

We examine a recent report that lists the Potomac as the most endangered river in the United States.

A new report says the Potomac is the most endangered river in the United States, and that its condition may get even worse in the coming years. The advocacy group American Rivers says the Potomac is suffering from pollution related to development and and agriculture. But other environmentalists have criticized the idea of saying that some rivers are at greater risk than others.
