Safe to Swim? Using Law, Policy, and Innovation to Clean Up D.C.'s Rivers

**This is a previously recorded program, originally recorded on March 30, 2017.
The Potomac and Anacostia Rivers are at the heart of the District's economic, environmental, and communal life. But 45 years after the passage of the Clean Water Act, they still fail to meet water quality standards, as elevated levels of fecal coliform bacteria make it risky to swim or do watersports.
In this program, experts from D.C. government, the environmental movement, and the regulated community will describe ongoing challenges and major efforts underway to finally clean up the Potomac and Anacostia, including work by the city, litigation under the Clean Water Act, and increased use of "green infrastructure."
This program was sponsored by the D.C. Bar Environment, Energy and Natural Resources Section. Cosponsored by the District of Columbia Affairs Section and the Environmental Law Institute.
