Saturday’s Creek Sweep canceled

From Local Sources

The Dubois County Solid Waste Management District has canceled the Creek Sweep scheduled for 8:30 to noon Saturday due to more than 3 inches of rain in the area.

“Saturday is going to be a beautiful day,” said Carla Striegel-Winner of the Dubois County Solid Waste Management District. “However, most of the sites we had mapped for pick up are in low-lying areas next to or near Patoka River. Some of that is under water, or covered in fresh flood debris. We recommend you and your family enjoy another activity going on in Dubois County this weekend and join us for a clean up later this winter.”

The event organizers plan to host a couple of “pop-up cleanups” later this winter to get some of the dumped items and litter from the mapped sites cleaned up. Those cleanups will be posted in local media.

To be notified of “pop-up cleanups,” contact the district at 812-482-1171.
