2008 Anacostia River Trash Study


Sunday, October 12, 2008

Plan lays out data collected from a systematic assessment of the types and sources of trash and a five year plan to make significant reductions in the amount of trash in the Anacostia River. 

The purpose of the plan is to conduct the necessary research, and develop a comprehensive framework, that will guide the trash reduction efforts in the watershed. Upon completion of the Trash Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for the Anacostia, the Trash Reduction Plan will serve as the implementation plan for the TMDL in the District of Columbia portion of the watershed.

It will also guide efforts in Rock Creek and the Potomac by serving as example of how a basin can be made trash free.
