Ohio River Sweep Set for June 21

Posted: Updated:
The Ohio River is set for some deep cleaning this month.

The Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission and "West Virginia, Make it Shine," are trying to get the word out on a six-state event that extends the length of the river from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Cairo, Illinois.

This year's river sweep is scheduled for Saturday, June. Last year, more than 18,0000 people volunteered.

You can find more information on the event here or call the Jefferson County JB Green Team at 740-266-6899.

This marks the 25th year of the Ohio River Sweep.
