ACC Sails a New Attitude on Annual Boat Ride

A boat ride on the new Spirit of Washington cruises leisurely along the Potomac River past Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, as well as the headquarters of both the U.S. Coast Guard and DC Water, and Blue Plains, the most advanced wastewater treatment facility in the world. All are located in Ward 8, a political district in the far southeast quadrant of D.C., that is too often identified by its crime and poverty; and where its residents lack access to health care, grocery stores, affordable housing and jobs.
