Pequabuck River cleanup set for Sept. 26


The Plainville Conservation Commission will be holding its annual Pequabuck River cleanup.

The event will take place on Saturday, Sept. 26 from 9 a.m. until noon. The location is behind West Cemetery on Route 177.  Signs will be posted.

Trash bags and gloves will be provided. The recommendation is to dress appropriately, such as older clothes, long pants, boots and long sleeved shirts in case of mosquitos, ticks or poison ivy.

For students this is a good way to get some community service hours.

Past cleanups have gone a long way to helping bring back the beauty and overall health of the river, improved the water quality, and brought back wildlife both to the area and the water.

This event will be held rain or shine.
