River sweep volunteers needed

Posted: Updated:

The Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission, along with several state and environmental agencies from Pennsylvania through Illinois, is looking for volunteers for the 25th annual River Sweep.

River Sweep 2014 is scheduled for June 21 along the shoreline of the Ohio River and its many tributaries.

ORSANCO is the water pollution control agency for the Ohio River and its tributaries. More than 3,000 miles of shoreline is combed for trash and debris as part of River Sweep, which encompasses six states.

Potential volunteers can find information at OhioRiverSweep.org or by calling 1-800-359-3977.
