April 14, 2018 - Mill Creek
Waterkeeper, Crest to Coast partners, Arrowhead Water, and volunteers kicked off Earth month by heading back to where it all began four years ago, Mill Creek. In 2014, over 250 volunteers cleared 8,000 pounds of litter, trash, and other debris from this once neglected waterway. Since then, the light accumulation of single use items, as well as other litter from encompassing neighborhoods, required the attention of Crest to Coast. Volunteers picked litter from along the creek and windblown trash from the both sides of the waterway and removed nearly 500 pounds of trash from this creek.
