The Anacostia and Potomac rivers have been pivotal to the region for generations as sites of trade, travel, and recreation. They’ve also been heavily polluted in recent decades, but there are indications that clean up efforts are paying off and that the health of both rivers is improving. WAMU recently explored the state of the Anacostia in a reporting project, “Anacostia Rising,” while a new ‘report card’ for the Potomac points to both progress and challenges ahead. We take a look at the past, present, and future of two rivers that connect and define our region.
