Bald eagles hunt fish along the Anacostia River and nest there. People like to play along the river and also fish in it. Water is the main attraction. So is there enough water? If all the water in the world were $1, 97 cents would be salt water, 2 1/3 cents would be glaciers, and a little over 1/2 cent would be locked in the ground where we can't get to it. The Anacostia River is part of the less than 1/3 cent that is fresh water available to us.
