Vehicle Runoff Abatement Vital to Riverfront Redevelopment

City riverfront redevelopment plan includes environmental overhaul to reduce vehicle runoff into the polluted Anacostia river.

The city wants the Anacostia riverfront to become a model of urban redevelopment, and it recently announced an $8 billion plan to upgrade the riverfront. The plan includes an environmental overhaul involving the creation of more wetlands and riverfront parkland, which could help stop polluted runoff from flowing into the river, according to Uwe Brandes, a project manager for the Anacostia Waterfront Initiative with the D.C. Office of Planning.
