Eric Burke got details on the annual Kentucky River clean sweep from Jennifer Myatt. Jennifer told Eric that volunteers are invited to help start the summer off with a clean environment at the annual Kentucky River Clean Sweep on Saturday, June 17th. Volunteers will venture out in boats on the Kentucky River to collect trash from the 12 miles of river that touches Fayette County. For the last two decades, volunteers have spent the third Saturday in June cleaning litter and trash from the river. This event is part of the Ohio River Sweep, a multi-state river cleanup that encompasses the entire length of the Ohio River and its tributaries. On June 17, Fayette County’s volunteers will be part of a cleanup that runs from Pennsylvania to Illinois.
If you want to participate The Annual Kentucky River Clean Sweep is Saturday, June 17th at 8:30am at the Clays Ferry Boat Dock on Hwy 25 under I-75 overpass. For more information you can visit riversweep2017.eventbrite.com
