New Study Shows the Potomac is Cleaner Now than Decades Ago
The Washington Post has a front page story today trumpeting the news that the Potomac River is the cleanest it’s been in half a century. Whoopie! Such good news. Unfortunately, before you even get to the jump, the report warns that we’ve still got a boatload of environmental problems in the river that supplies our drinking water here in the District and much of the region.
Still, this partial success story inspires hope that we can also tackle the Potomac’s other woes — such as invasive species, pesticides and other runoff from farms and lawns, and the mysterious chemical that causes male fish to grow eggs.
