Washington, DC


“Dear PoPville,

I took this picture yesterday right where the Glover-Archbold Trail crosses New Mexico Ave. That is no filter- the water is wine/blood red colored. It was like this prior to the storm yesterday and still is there today.

This spot must collect a lot of strange runoff because ever 2-3 weeks it gains some color. Sometimes faintly white and sometimes a faint blue/white, but this was so bright and shocking I had to take a picture.

I called the NPS and sent them the picture too. They say that they are going to contact DC govt folks and probably have to test the water.”

Good God that is disturbing. I’m guessing maybe that District Department of the Environment could look into it. Anyone else know who should look into this situation?
