Picking up trash along our waterways is a little thing that can make a big difference for our streams. Louisville MSD is hosting a “COVID-19 cautious” volunteer effort to improve water quality in the Mill Creek watershed.
This free event is Saturday, November 20, from 8:00 AM to 11:30 AM at the Southwest Regional Library, located at 9725 Dixie Highway. Volunteers must wear a mask and practice social distancing during the event. MSD will provide trash bags, gloves, a sanitizing station, and trash pickup.
To keep our groups to 10 or less, please register for one of three shifts at https://bit.ly/30d8Un8.
Water that falls in the Mill Creek watershed lands on impervious surfaces, such as roofs and pavement—collecting toxins, pollutants, and sediments as it makes its way to the creek. “Everyone benefits when we work together by picking up trash in and around the area, reducing pollution in our waterways,” states MS4 Program Administrator Colette Easter.
This event is part of MSD’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) outreach effort.
