In this personal reflection on pollution in the Potomac River, I hope to inspire others to care for their local waterways and natural areas. I am currently pursuing my bachelor’s degree in marine biology at Unity College and I am very passionate about cleaning up our environment. Last summer I got to work as an intern at a State Park along the Potomac River.

The experience taught me a lot, as I noticed an increase in the amount of trash across the park and many dead fish washing ashore. This experience inspired me to read up on the history of the Potomac and river pollution. In this story, I share with you my findings on river pollution and what we can do to help clean up our rivers.
