On Saturday, April 14, at noon, Del. Scott Surovell and Supervisor Jeff McKay will host a creek cleanup for Little Hunting Creek in coordination with the Friends of Little Hunting Creek and the Alice Ferguson Foundation Potomac River Cleanup.
Little Hunting Creek and its tributaries are currently listed as impaired streams by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality due to elevated levels of e-coli, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB's), and impaired macro invertebrate environments. It is also significantly polluted with litter.
The staging location is in the Sequoyah Condominiums parking lot, 7950 Seven Woods Drive. Gloves and bags will be provided. Volunteers should wear appropriate clothing and waterproof shoes. RSVP so sufficient supplies can be provided. For more information and to RSVP go to bit.ly/creekcleanup.
