Pepco employees will participate in the annual spring cleanup of the Anacostia River shoreline. Pepco's Benning Service Center, 3400 Benning Rd., in Northeast Washington, will serve as the staging area for cleanup activities April 21, 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM. Volunteers will also plant trees, remove debris, and help restore the landscape.
