(If the river is in flood stage, the cleanup will be moved to Sat, Nov 3)
The first cleaning of the Great Miami River started back in 1986 when two Tri-county Sanitation lab workers were pulling GMR water samples off of Old Needmore Road facility. They both commented to each other that the trash on / in the GMR was terrible! These two gentlemen started the first "sweep". In 2005, several groups along the southern stretch of the GMR saw the great work going on upstream, and decided to join in the fun. Since 2005, groups all along the GMR, from Indian Lake at the headwaters, to Shawnee Lookout Park at the mouth, take part.
