When you flush your toilet, do you know what happens?

If you can, I urge you to attend the meeting or the libraries listed below to learn more about this project. In case you don't know a combined sewer system means that when it rains the rain water goes into the sewer system. In heavy rain events, the system discharges into the Anacostia River. Yes, discharges rain and raw sewage. It is one of the many reasons the Anacostia is so nasty.

As a side note, I did my Masters thesis on the Anacostia River. You couldn't pay me enough money to even be within 2000 feet of the riverbank.... Just sayin...
