HCWA Joins Henry Co. Stormwater for Rivers Alive
The Henry County Water Authority (HCWA) will join forces with Henry County Stormwater Management to host the annual Henry County Rivers Alive river cleanup on Saturday, Nov. 13, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The site where the river cleanup will take place is on property located off of East Lake Parkway, past Price Quarters Drive in McDonough.
Henry County Rivers Alive is an official event of the Georgia Rivers Alive Campaign. Rivers Alive is Georgia’s Annual Waterway Cleanup, which targets all waterways in the state, including creeks, streams, rivers, lakes- reservoirs, beaches, and wetlands.
The mission of Georgia Rivers Alive, which is a Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) Outreach Program, is to create awareness of and involvement in the preservation of Georgia’s water resources.
Georgia’s waterways, which include more than 70,000 miles of streams and rivers, provide communities with water for finished drinking water production, recreational opportunities like fishing and canoeing, and natural resources that contribute to the quality of life and economic development across the state.
Volunteers should bring heavy-duty work gloves, a water bottle or source of hydration, sunscreen and insect repellant. They should also consider wearing long pants and a long-sleeve shirt, covered shoes or boots, and a hat. Volunteers must be at least 12 years old, with a parent or guardian present if they are younger than 16. All guests must sign a waiver.
