4,000 gallons of toxic coal ash spilt upriver from the District today. There is no information yet on when this will reach DC, but if you’re a boater or swimmer, this would scream “off limits” for the river in ways the cold water just can’t.

John has lived in DC since attending CUA’s Architecture school starting in 1995. He is a UI/UX/Design guru for LivingSocial and also plays in numerous bands (Juniper Lane, Rotoscope, Boboroshi & Kynz) and loves hyping people on eating local food, sustainable human settlement patterns, gardening, and good old fashioned rock and roll and electronica. He runs the dirt lab (aka mega garden) for WeLoveDC, where he eats most of the proceeds.
