Several APACC member organizations have been working with the District Department of Energy and Environment and the National Park Service to plan the first of several planned public meetings to discuss the Anacostia River Sediment Project, which will determine the future of the contaminated sediment at the bottom of the Anacostia River.
The first of these meetings has been scheduled for Wednesday, June 21st, from 10:00AM-12:00PM (registration and refreshments at 9:30AM). This meeting is intended for "stakeholders" -- non-profit organizations, government agencies, and community leaders -- to get up to speed on the extent of pollution in the Anacostia River and what can be done about it. Please RSVP for the event here.
Members of APACC will be attending the event and we will keep you up to date as it approaches.
