SRTU River Clean Up Report
SRTU and Gateway Streetscapes teamed up to clean the Smith from Philpott dam to Townes Creek on July 20th. We also leaned Riverbrook Road which goes from Philpott road to the below dam recreation area. We had about 20 members and guests helping in one way or another. We collected about 20 bags of trash, many tires, an old oil drum, sign posts, a deck umbrella and a newspaper lock box. Lots of treasures! Afterwards, we had a great cookout lunch. Some of the gang got in some fishing downstream as they jumped ahead of the noon generation. A big thanks to Lizz Stanley of Gateway for the support, bags and arranging the trash pick up. Our guests, many of whom drove 4+ hours from NC, are to be congratulated for their efforts and love of the river. See you next year!
