Anacostia River pollution

The Anacostia, a Chesapeake Bay tributary, which runs right through our nation's capitol is considered one of the watershed's most polluted rivers. Not only is trash prominent, but storm water runoff feeds raw sewage directly into the river, basically whenever it rains. Took a trip to find some of the runoff drains, however I always manage to find wildlife wherever I go, like these Eastern Painted Turtles.
