Many things are being done in the Chesapeake watershed that we are really unaware of. This is one of them, and others are available through this site.

These projects that target tributaries are critical to restoring the health of the Anacostia and the Bay.  Hopefully, many people will see this video and then go to see the projects themselves.  Thanks for bringing them this close.

The District serves as a model for communities across the country that struggle with the unfortunate issues associated with stormwater runoff pollution: sediment, chemicals, litter and debris, etc. As the manufacturer of the Bandalong Litter Trap, Storm Water Systems is proud to play a small part in this incredible clean water initiative. Thanks for posting this great video!
