“Do you know the name of this secret buried creek in the Queens Chapel Neighborhood?”

Update from DC Water: “Our guess was it might be a combined sewer outfall. The experts say it is not.
It’s a separate storm sewer that discharges to an open channel that flows to the Northwest Branch of the Anacostia River.”

“Dear PoPville,

was running up Gallatin near 14th St NE near Fort Circle Parks. Saw this neat looking water or garbage management contraption at a creek outlet that flows into the Anacostia River. Do you know the name of this secret buried creek in the Queens Chapel Neighborhood?”

One early guess: “Maybe part of Sligo Creek?”
