Volunteers Clean St. Joseph Creek During DuPage County River Sweep
On Saturday, June 10, District employees joined a group from First United Methodist Church, Downers Grove for the annual DuPage County River Sweep. Volunteers picked up about 17 garbage bags full of debris along St. Joseph Creek behind our wastewater treatment plant. Items such as glass bottles, cans, a truck tire, parts of a car seat and much more were removed.
The DuPage County River Sweep is an annual cleanup event organized by the Conservation Foundation that encourages citizens to improve local waterways by removing debris and litter from a section of stream or pond. Thanks to the Conservation Foundation for hosting a great event!
