Inscription.  The Anacostia River has flooded the Navy Yard many times, with the worst flooding in 1936, 1937, 1942, and 1996. The flooding curtailed operations, inundating buildings closest to the river, and covered ground floors with 12 to 18 inches of water. In 2000, along with federal and local agencies, the Navy supported plans to better manage, protect, and beautify the Anacostia River watershed.
