1st Annual Great Plastic Purge Of Lower Susquehanna River Set For Oct. 31, Nov. 7

 On October 31 and November 7 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. the Lower Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association and partners including the Penn State Master Watershed Stewards of York, Lancaster, Lebanon and Dauphin Counties, Watershed Alliance of York and York County Coalition for Clean Waters will be hosting the 1st Annual Plastic Purge of the Lower Susquehanna.

This large-scale cleanup will take place around Lake Clarke on the Susquehanna River on both sides of the River and everywhere in between. 

Lake Clarke is a 10 mile reservoir or "Lake" formed by the hydroelectric Safe Harbor Dam. Plastics, tires, litter and other debris continue to get flushed into the Susquehanna River so we will be doing our part to clean up and help protect our downstream neighbors, aquatic and avian species. 

They will have registration tables and trash containers at the Lock 2 Lower Boat Ramp in York County and also at the Blue Rock Boat Launch in Lancaster.
