PRWA announces river cleanup in Plymouth, Bristol, and Plainville

Submitted

The Pequabuck River Watershed Association (PRWA) seeks volunteers to help clean our river Saturday, April 28 from 8 AM-12:30 PM. This year’s river cleanup will cover areas in Terryville, Bristol, and Plainville. Millions of tons of trash end up in our nation’s rivers and streams every year. And it’s more than just an eyesore; it can contaminate our drinking water and threaten the life of all who depend on it.  

“The Pequabuck River Watershed Association is dedicated to protecting the Pequabuck River because a healthy community depends upon a healthy river. Our volunteers are excited to pitch in. They know a clean river is necessary for a healthy community,” said Mary Rydingsward, President of PRWA.

Volunteers should arrive between 8:00-8:15 AM. Those wishing to volunteer in Terryville should meet at the Plymouth wastewater treatment plant, 35 Canal Road, Pequabuck and volunteers for Bristol and Plainville locations can simply show up in Nuchie’s Parking lot, 164 Central Street, Bristol. You will see PRWA signs indicating the meeting location.

“This cleanup will help showcase the river when people assemble in Forestville for the Annual Duck Race Sunday, May 6. The Pequabuck River is so important to our community; we’ve got to take every opportunity we can to protect it; for us and for future generations”, said Rydingsward.  

The Pequabuck River Watershed Association’s cleanup is co-sponsored by Moran Environmental Recovery and Nuchie’s Restaurant.
