Louisville MSD proudly sponsors the 28th annual Ohio River Sweep with the Ohio River Valley Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO), LG&E and Louisville Water. Ohio River Sweep is one of the largest annual environmental cleanups in the United States.
On June 17, thousands of volunteers will remove tons of trash and debris. This cleanup encompasses the entire length of the river, from its origin in Pittsburgh, PA to its end in Cairo, IL, including nearly 3,000 miles of shoreline and many tributaries.
We will host our six traditional cleanup sites in Jefferson County, and we are introducing a new site this year at Karen Lynch Park, which provides access to the west side of Beargrass Creek and the confluence with the Ohio River via the Butchertown Greenway.
An MSD employee will coordinate each site, supplying volunteers with gloves, trash bags and a commemorative T-shirt. Feel free to attend the cleanup site of your choice:
