Independence Conservancy, Local Partners Cleanup Flood Debris From Raccoon Creek In Beaver County

On May 15th an ambitious crew of about 30 people spent a day cleaning up flood debris from the Raccoon Creek Greenway in Potter Township, Beaver County.
Volunteers from Range Resources’ Canonsburg office brought trucks, trailers, and even a small boat to help them retrieve three tons of tires, appliances, furniture and household garbage from both banks of Raccoon Creek.
Beaver County Jail’s Community Service Crew worked with Independence Conservancy’s tire shear to clean up an illegal dump, properly disposing of a hundred tires and rusty wheels.
Sure-footed folks in hip waders ventured deep into a wetland to pull out plastic pipes, barrels, bottles and things no longer identifiable.
Thanks to these hard-working people for making nearly two miles of creek bank and a mile of Raccoon Creek Road sparkle! They had so much fun; they want to come back next spring.
