Event makes ‘clean sweep’ of canal

To the Editor:

Thank you to all the POWW (Protecting Our Water-Ways) volunteers that participated in the 14th Annual Clean Sweep of the Piqua hydraulic canal on Saturday, Oct. 7. With your efforts, we took approximately 80 pounds of plastic bottles, cans, Styrofoam coffee cups and plastic bags out of these beautiful local waters.

Think before you pitch it! You carry it in, you carry it out. Use a trash can.
