River Sweep June 21

Updated 3 years ago
The Ohio River is one of the many jewels our community, and the City of Huntington encourages residents to help restore its shine this Saturday, June 21, during the annual Ohio River Sweep.

Cleanups are planned for 9 a.m. at Harris Riverfront Park and other areas of the community.

Since 1989, this award-winning cleanup for the Ohio River and its tributaries brings thousands of volunteers to the riverbanks to collect tons of trash and debris. River Sweep encompasses the entire length of the river, from its origin in Pittsburgh to its end in Cairo, Ill., including nearly 3,000 miles of shoreline and many tributaries.

River Sweep is an event organized by the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission, an interstate water pollution agency for the Ohio River Valley, along with environmental protection and natural resource agencies from Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
