There are lots of waterways in the District of Columbia. The Potomac River is the main body of water there; however, there are many tributaries. The Anacostia River, The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal and Rock Creek flows into the Potomac. These bodies are in D.C. proper but there are many water ways from the surrounding states that flow into the Potomac.And bye the way i am doing a project on the washington monument haha.=)
