2015 Stream Clean-ups
On May 2nd 2015, Linda Swank led a small group on a clean-up along the east bank of the reservoir. Four of us worked southwards from Worth’s Bridge Road and four northwards from Jackson School Road. In a couple of hours, we hauled out 1025 lbs of trash including 6 tires and an inflatable dinghy, filling the dumpster at Fishing Headquarters to overflowing. We had hoped to meet up, but did not come close, and will be returning on April 23, 2016 for another clean-up.

Unnamed Tributary of Stone Run - April 25th
Rupert Rossetti & Rising Sun Parks & Rec.

The 17 tires, many of them on rims, weighed in at 1380 lbs and the remainder has yet to be dropped off at the Cecil County Landfill, which has granted us waivers for the normal fees.
