The River Runs Through Us looks at the ways the Potomac River connects everyone in their everyday lives. Despite improvements, our nation’s river still faces a number of new and emerging threats including chemicals that we can’t see, urban development and population growth and new risks from climate change. As we follow the flow of the river, we learn about the need to protect this resource for ourselves and future generations.
