Over 80 people gathered in the basement of Thurgood Marshall Academy in Anacostia last month for an event titled “Connecting for a Cleaner Anacostia River.”
The first of several planned public events, this meeting on June 21 featured presentations by Tommy Wells of the Department of Energy & Environment, Tara Morrison of the National Park Service and consultants working on behalf of both agencies.
The presentations updated the audience about the latest progress on the “Anacostia River Sediment Project” (ARSP) - the plan to clean up contamination at the bottom of the Anacostia River.
