Some Wednesday Wetness

If you’ve been following local Washington, D.C., news over the last six months, you may have heard about the Anacostia River Splash event that was canceled due to inclement weather. Given the legacy of pollution in the Anacostia, it may come as a surprise that a swim event can even be organized. While it is still illegal to swim in the Anacostia because the river has not met water quality standards in many respects, conditions in some parts of the river are improving, which makes a carefully monitored and arranged swimming event now possible.
I remember when we had to get hepatitis A shots to work in the Anacostia.
