“The United for a Healthy Anacostia River coalition commends today’s decision by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities to relocate the “Antediluvian” temporary art project outside of the Anacostia River. The announcement ensures that river restoration and cleanup efforts will continue without delay.
We wish artist Mia Feuer all the best and hope she finds a more suitable location for her installation.”
United for a Healthy Anacostia River is a coalition comprised of leading environmental, business and community groups within the District of Columbia. The coalition advocates for the cleanup of all of the PCBs, PAHs and other toxic chemicals in the tidal Anacostia River, especially legacy toxics in the riverbed sediments. Through educational efforts directed at the public, the media, elected officials, and political candidates, the coalition’s goal is to ensure that actual cleanup efforts are underway in five years.
