Henry County Rivers Alive is Saturday Nov. 3
The Henry County Water Authority (HCWA), in partnership with the Henry County Stormwater Management Department, will be hosting the 2018 Henry County Rivers Alive river cleanup on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The annual cleanup will address litter and debris collecting along the stream banks of Camp Creek in McDonough, located behind the Hampton Point Apartments. Volunteers are gathering at the parking lot of the business complex located at 1805 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Henry County Rivers Alive is affiliated with the statewide Rivers Alive program – Georgia’s Annual Waterway Clean-up event, which targets all waterways in the State, including creeks, streams, rivers, lakes, beaches, and wetlands.
The mission of Rivers Alive is to create awareness of and involvement in the preservation of Georgia’s water resources. Rivers Alive is a Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) Outreach Program.
Georgia’s waterways, which include more than 70,000 miles of streams and rivers, provide us with water for finished drinking water production, recreational opportunities like fishing and canoeing, and natural resources that add to the quality of life and economic development in the State.
Participants in this year’s Henry County Rivers Alive include: Dutchtown Middle School and the Brothers of Virtue group; Henry County Juvenile Justice Department, and Strong Rock Christian Academy, as well as employees from the HCWA and Henry County Stormwater. Additional volunteers are needed and welcome.
