Troubled Waters: About this series

WASHINGTON – The Potomac watershed serves as the source of drinking water for millions of people in the Washington region.

Over the years, it and its tributaries have been plagued with problems — from pollution and chemical contamination to raw sewage and fish turning up with characteristics of both sexes.

In WTOP’s special series, “Troubled Waters,” WTOP reporters went out on local waterways and into treatment plants and labs to look into the top issues facing the Potomac River watershed and the health of the water the region drinks.

Join WTOP every day this week as Brennan Haselton, Neal Augenstein, Megan Cloherty, Michelle Basch and Andrew Mollenbeck delve deeper into the health of the Potomac watershed.
