Save the Date: Ohio River Sweep 2019
The annual Ohio River Sweep has been scheduled for Saturday, June 15, 2019, along the shorelines of the Ohio River and many of its tributaries.
The Ohio River Sweep is a volunteer, riverbank cleanup that extends the entire length of the Ohio River. Volunteers from the six states which border the Ohio River will remove litter at over 125 locations.
"The volunteers for the Ohio River Sweep have made tremendous progress cleaning the Ohio River. Yet, litter continues to be a global problem. Volunteers can make a positive impact in our watershed by volunteering for the Ohio River Sweep," said Lisa Cochran, Program Manager.
Volunteers are needed for this massive event. People who want to volunteer for this event can visit the website
for more details. Locations will be posted in early spring.
The Ohio River Sweep is managed by the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO) and other environmental agencies from Pennsylvania to Illinois. Funding for the
Ohio River Sweep relies solely on sponsorship from industries or grants from organizations throughout the Ohio River Valley.
