Trash-Free Potomac Resources

TRASH POLLUTION IS A GROWING PROBLEM IN THE POTOMAC WATERSHED.

Trash in the Potomac River and its tributaries comes from a variety of sources including littering and illegal dumping. Rain also washes litter directly into the water or into storm drains. Eventually, the trash flows into the Chesapeake Bay and ultimately, the Atlantic Ocean. It is important that we prevent pollution from entering our rivers because most trash that ends up in the ocean originates from rivers.
