Creek clean-up event happens Oct. 14
In an effort to keep streams clean, the City of Lee’s Summit Public Works Department is organizing a Stream Team event and asking volunteers to help clean up litter from the creek in Deer Valley Park at 1400 N.E. Neawanna Drive in Lee’s Summit.
The city said it’s organizing the creek clean-up to remove trash and other materials dumped on stream banks, such as yard waste, which threatens the water quality of streams by decomposing and eliminating critical, life-giving oxygen from the water. Trash is not only collected by stormwater and transported to nearby lakes and streams, it frequently contains toxic materials that can pollute lakes and streams, the city noted.
The clean-up event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon Oct. 14 at the park. Student and Boy/Girl Scout community service hours will be available. Court-ordered community service will not be offered at this event.
Volunteers will receive instructions and supplies consisting of gloves and trash bags. Lunch will be provided at 11:30 a.m. at the park. Prizes will be awarded for collecting the most unique items.
For more information about the Public Works Stream Team or to volunteer, contact the Public Works Department at 816-969-1800.
