DDOE is partnering with the Anacostia Riverkeeper, Groundworks Anacostia DC and Stormwater Systems  to install  two new trash trap in Ward 7 at Marvin Gaye Park and at the outfall at James Creek Marina.  This will reduce the trashload entering the Anacostia River, important in achieving a trash-free Potomac Watershed by 2013 and complying with the new Trash TMDL, as well as provide a better understanding of the effects of trash on the Anacostia River and the efforts being taken by the District to address trash. ARK will use its knowledge of and experience in the use of Bandalong Litter Traps to implement this project.
