Litter and Pollution Control Awareness

There has been a recent focus within our neighborhood to increase awareness about litter, especially in our streams. On July 8th a number of Boy Scout Troops helped to pick up trash on the Lake Norman dam. An incredible amount of trash ends up in our lake and it takes constant effort to keep it clean. This photo shows just some of the trash pick up on only the dam area.

This effort was very much appreciated by those that enjoy the lake. There is plenty of trash in other areas of the lake and many residents spend time picking up trash from the lake.

 

 

 

Recently there was a trash can painting party at the pool as part of the “no trash in the stream awareness project”. A number of children in our neighborhood helped paint. Just another opportunity to help our residents understand the importance of keeping our yards and streams litter free.
