- Tons of trash in Anacostia – Can we see ours?
Anything we put in a storm drain goes directly to our streams. The Anacostia River and all of our streams drains to the Potomac River, which in turn drains to the Chesapeake Bay.
When the trash we dump has toxic chemicals are extremely harmful to humans, animals and plants. Just one quart of motor oil can ruin the quality of 250,000 gallons of water.
To help prevent this happening, the Committee for a Better Environment is hosting this weekend, to spray paint “no dumping” stencils on storm drains around the City. Please come out if you can!!
The event will be held on this upcoming Sunday, March 28, meeting at Wood’s Flowers and Gifts at 9223 Baltimore Ave., on the corner of Route One and Erie Street ( Please see the map below.). The event will go from 9 am-2 pm, but you can come and go as you wish, and stay as long as you want!!
