The program was announced at the first Stream Cleanup Day, held on Saturday, November 17 at the stream between Burger King and Wal-Mart in
The kick-off event included individuals from the Sullivan County Division of Planning & Environmental Management,
The program will focus in two areas: critical stream sites in need of remediation; and general litterpluck efforts on streams around the county. The public is invited to identify potential sites for the 2nd Annual Stream Clean-up Day. Things to think about when selecting a site include:
· Access – Is it easy to get to?
· Safety – Is it too steep? Is the current too strong?
· Size – Is it large enough for a group of people?
