Abstract The Anacostia River Watershed Restoration Plan (ARP) and report is the product of a two year planning effort to produce a systematic 10-year restoration plan for environmental and ecological restoration within the entire Anacostia River watershed. While much has been accomplished over the previous decades to restore this important urban watershed in and around our nation's capital, the river and its tributaries remain highly polluted and ecologically stressed. The public and all levels of government have demonstrated their interest and commitment to restoring the watersheds ecological integrity and function so communities can reap the benefits of a clean river that supports use by its residents and contributes to the overall environmental improvement and quality of life. In August 2008, the Anacostia Watershed Restoration Partnership (AWRP) issued an Action Agenda that described the Partnerships accomplishments and the actions planned for the next three years to restore the Anacostia River watershed. Numerous actions currently underway are addressing major problems caused by uncontrolled stormwater runoff, deficiencies in the water and sewer infrastructure, excessive sedimentation, and excessive trash accumulation in the river, among other problems.
