Just a thought, although I know that Isaac Crossman creek water looks tempting.

No matter how inviting, avoid using local streams as a solution to limited pool access this summer. Unseen pollution could mean the water's unsafe for humans and pets and currents can be unpredictable. https://environment.arlingtonva.us/streams/stream-safety

Hi Neighbors! Today is World Water Day. In it's honor, if you are out taking a walk, please pick up one (or more) pieces of trash or recycling in our neighborhood, particularly in one of our parks or in the stream, which is Chesapeake Bay Watershed. World Water Day is more tied to climate change than pollution but every bit helps!
