The Earth Conservation Corps, in partnership with several public housing communities and the District of Columbia, are restoring a site adjacent to the Old Capitol Pumphouse in Washington, DC.
The site sits beside the Anacostia River, a significant tributary of the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay and the focus of a number of conservation and restoration efforts. The Old Pumphouse site is being restored as a community park, providing area residents with access to the Anacostia.
The park was completed in 2009 with a pier for water taxis and poublic piers for canoes and kayaks to be launched.
