$600 Million Nationals Park Makes a Debut

The $600 million Nationals Park makes its debut Sunday evening as the Washington Nationals play the Atlanta Braves. The stadium offers views of the Washington Monument, the U.S. Capitol and the Anacostia River, already one of the most polluted in the country. A storm-water management system should help control runoff, but will the stadium ultimately hurt or help the Anacostia?
