StreamSweepers Receives Endorsement of Organizations and Agencies to Proceed with Comprehensive Cleanup of the Clinch and Middle Rivers in 2019

After 2 years of assessment of the Clinch River (St. Paul, VA) and nearly a year of river cleanup concept discussions with the Friends of the Middle River (Staunton, VA), StreamSweepers has the green light to proceed with comprehensive cleanup in Partnership with a host of area conservation and social organizations and agencies. Fundraising and short range planning for our Clinch and Shenandoah Rivers Cleanup Campaigns is now underway. The Clinch River program will take several years and will be the largest industrial river cleanup in our history and comes on the heels of completion of our Rappahannock Rivers Cleanup Campaign (2012-2018) this year. If you would like to help, please contact the Center at 540-7672-2542. And, if you would like to donate to these efforts, please find our 2019 Campaign button on our website.
