DC Water's Trash HunterTrash Hunter Collecting Floating Debris
The Trash Hunters have full-time crews to pick up debris from 15.4 miles of shoreline. The boats capture and remove 400 tons or more of floating debris and trash each year.

DC Water invested in restoring fabridams to reduce the amount of debris that reaches the waterways. Prior to the restoration of these dams, the DC debris skimmer boats were removing closer to 100 tons of debris per month.
