KIMBERLING CITY, Mo. – Ozarks Water Watch is looking to bring its 16-year trash haul to over 240 tons with the upcoming Table Rock Lake Shoreline Cleanup on Saturday, April 2nd.
Project Director Gopala Borchelt says to date, volunteers have logged over 22-thousand hours removing trash and debris from the lake’s 800 miles of shoreline. She says everything that happens around the lake affects its water quality…
Borchelt says cleanup efforts this year will focus on the James River, Kings River and Long Creek arms of Table Rock Lake, along with other areas that were significantly affected by flooding in December.
The group is still looking for volunteers, and will provide gloves, trash bags, cleaning equipment, snacks and free t-shirts to those willing to join the effort.
