Notes:
A collaborative Smithsonian project led by the Anacostia Community Museum, the interdisciplinary Urban Waterways Project explores issues of densely populated watersheds and the impact of suburbanization on upstream-downstream influences; the cultural attitudes of diverse populations toward local ecosystems; and national rivers and urban development. The Anacostia River has been at the center of research investigations; this river system serves as an exemplar of the challenges that urban residents and their communities face. Also known as the Eastern Branch of the Potomac River, the Anacostia has long been considered one of the nation's most troubled urban rivers. Covering more than 175 square miles, it is also one of the nation's most densely populated rivers. The problems facing the Anacostia River are problems that confront other rivers in the industrialized world.
