The Claude Moore Community Builders took some time last weekend to help clean up the Potomac River.
Keep Loudoun Beautiful’s annual Watershed Clean-Up was held Saturday, Aug. 13, in the Potomac River near Brunswick, MD. The 25 members of the community builder program were part of a group of 67 volunteers from around Loudoun County.
“It was shocking to see what has ended up in our waterways,” Valerie Pisierra, Loudoun Cares CMCB program coordinator and volunteer, stated in a press release.
Trash, water bottles, hundreds of tires, metal, and many other items that could have easily been recycled were among the items found. Overall the volunteers retrieved a 120 tires from the river, but had to leave many more behind. The 25 builders were part of a group of 67 volunteers from around Loudoun County.
