State Grant To Help Sauquoit Creek Cleanup
If you do some fishing or canoeing on central New York streams and creeks, you know that Sauquoit Creek has accumulated debris after several storms last year. Now a cleanup effort will take place this summer with financial help from the state.
According to our sister station, WIBX:
County Executive Anthony Picente says the main focus of the cleanup will be loose debris and garbage along the 26-mile creek as the result of damage from Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee last year.
Picente says the county will hire 30 to 35 temporary workers to help with the cleanup, which is expected to be completed by the end of September."
