    Aug 20, 2013

    The 5th Ave low-head dam was removed from the Olentangy River last summer, and the lower water levels have revealed a lot of trash and debris. OSU’s Ecological Engineering Society and the Friends of the Lower Olentangy Watershed have helped clean up the debris. The last clean up in November (on the west bank) removed over 40 tires, 15 shopping cars, a bike, and dozens of bags of trash.

    Join them this Saturday (8/24) to clean up the Olentangy River at Tuttle Park at 9 a.m. Registration will be located at the Rec Center just north of the ball fields.
