Carroll County Kings River Cleanup Big Success!

 

KRWP volunteers pose with mountain of tires and trash removed from the Kings River: June 4, 2016.

 

On Saturday June 4th, 60 volunteers braved morning showers to participate in the 11th annual Kings River Carroll County cleanup sponored by the Kings River Watershed Partnership. It turned out to be the best one yet. The group hauled 116 more tires out of the river, bringing the 11 year total up to 1038! They also removed two pickup loads of rubbish, a pickup load of metal, another refrigerator, a chemical toilet and a 55 gallon drum of tar.

 

Thanks to private landowners who allowed access to the river on their property. Also thanks to Carroll County Solid Waste Authority, Boy Scout Troop 67 from Eureka Springs, and the generous local businesses who sponsored the event and donated door prizes.

 

This was the twenty-second overall river cleanup held by the Kings River Watershed Partnership.
