It takes a village to take on water cleanup activities in the area, and we appreciate each and every partner who is part of the Waterway Restoration Partnership. All partners are listed on the website’s 'Partners' page where you can learn in detail about their roles and projects. You can access the Waterway Restoration Partnership website by clicking below.

Environmental Spotlight :
Plastic-Free July

Plastic-free July is an initiative of the Plastic Free Foundation, which aims to address the ever-increasing plastic pollution throughout the world by refusing the use of single-use plastics. 

The plastic-free July challenge asks people to avoid using one single-use plastic and start making a difference one-by-one. Millions of people worldwide using reusable bags when shopping can help minimize the use of single-use plastics. We should do it for cleaner streets as well as cleaner waterways, and the collective effort will go a long way.

The Waterway Restoration Partnership supports these initiatives to make our waterways cleaner and safer for everyone to enjoy.
