Moss Run hosts a special visitor
Today, during a much needed rain fall, Deputy Director of the Prince George's County Department of the Environment made a 2 hour visit to Moss Run, our watershed neighbor to the north. Mr. Joe Gill and a Friend of Quincy Run entered the stream at the Phoenix Apartments in Bladensburg. Heavy flow made walking east through the rock and concrete channel toward the BW Parkway exciting. The visitors decided to save exploring the tunnel, which runs under the Parkway to Capital Plaza, for a dryer day. After a brief trip along the channelized stream segment which runs behind Bladen Shopping Center, next stop was the industrial park west of Kenilworth Ave. A quick hop across Annapolis Road brought the explorers to the channel which conducts Moss Run to the Anacostia. At the time of our arrival, the flood gates were closed, so we were not able to see the confluence. Exploration of the other stream segments await another day.
