Here is some local television coverage from our June 30, 2011, action in the Anacostia River protesting the 28th year of not meeting the Clean Water Act deadline. We got terrific national and local media coverage.
At the event organizers called for for readily-achievable actions by Prince Georges County, the District of Columbia, states and the EPA to put the River and all bay rivers on a path to reach the Clean Water Act’s long-postponed fishable and swimmable goal. (See our press release.)
