2nd Annual Watershed Cleanup Day - Saturday April 2nd, 2016 Thank you to the seven volunteers that came out on April 2nd to help us with the watershed cleanup in Westover. We were able to collect ten bags of litter along with some miscellaneous items from along Chest Creek, Bridge Street, Water Street, and the road that goes back toward the water treatment plant. Also, thank you to PennDOT for supplying the bags, gloves, and vests and for disposing of the trash we collected. If you are fishing in the area this season, please be mindful of the hard work our volunteers put in and help keep the area clean and litter free! Thank you!
