Storm drains are the fast lane for how stormwater reaches the Anacostia River in Washington, DC. However, when [said] drain looks just like a curb, it can be hard to remember that the hole in the road is a direct line to one of DC’s most precious natural resources.

The Anacostia Watershed Society made it their duty to restore this connection. They brought in local designers and, for the first time, The Art Institute of Washington put in their bid!

Student Krystle Marsh, who is pursuing a bachelor of fine arts degree Media Arts & Animation, submitted her #TrashfreeDC design for consideration a few months ago. Recently, Krystle was informed that she was selected as a finalist and her design would be one of many that will cover several storm drains around the Washington, DC area. Krystle’s completed design is located at the intersection of Dix Street and Anacostia Avenue NE.
