Community Will Participate in River Sweep Saturday

There will be three river clean-ups in Armstrong County this weekend.

From 8AM-noon Saturday, June 16, volunteers will clean-up trash and garbage at the Rosston boat launch in Ford City, the Bernard C. Snyder picnic area at the mouth of Cowanshannock Creek and along the Roaring Run Trail along the Kiskiminetas River in Apollo.

Sponsored by the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO), six other states will also pick up trash and deposit it in dumpsters delivered to the clean-up areas.

Volunteers are asked to wear good boots or shoes, wear appropriate clothing and bring gloves.

Volunteers will receive a free 2012 River Sweep T-shirt for their participation.
