The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy is hosting the Delta Waterway Cleanup on Saturday, April 18, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. as a part of Creek Week.
This year the Delta Waterway Cleanup event will take place at two Delta locations, Lower Morrison Creek at the Bufferlands and Sherman Island.
At the Lower Morrison Creek site, volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in a water quality monitoring demonstration. After a demonstration of how to use water quality monitoring equipment, volunteers can collect water quality data. To get to this cleanup site, from Interstate 5 and Meadowview travel east to Freeport Blvd., turn right onto Freeport Blvd., turn left on Stonecrest and travel up and over the bridge. Drive 10 mph and follow signs to the site.
At the Sherman Island site, a free tire recycling event for illegally dumped tires is offered by the Conservancy in partnership with Bridgestone’s Tires 4ward Tire Recycling Program. This is not an amnesty program; only illegally dumped tires qualify. To get to this cleanup site, meet at "The Sign" just south of Rio Viento RV Park on West Sherman Island Road. Going south on West Sherman Island Road, take the left fork immediately southwest of the RV park. You can use the address for your GPS, but there will not be a physical building on your arrival--4632 West Sherman Island Road, Rio Vista, CA.
The Delta Waterway Cleanup focuses specifically on protecting and improving water quality in the Delta ecosystem, while raising awareness and understanding of good waterway stewardship practices.
