SWBNO picks up 211 tons of trash out of the canals per year!
The EPA’s Trash Free Waters Program will be holding a workshop Friday afternoon, July 25th to share information and progress on this effort to reduce trash(specifically “floatables”) in the nation’s waterways. The session will focus on identifying the extent and source of the problem in New Orleans, and on specific activities (and available funding sources) that can help minimize trash pollution in Lake Pontchartrain and adjacent waterways.
Attached is a draft agenda and background info on the Trash Free Waters Program.
When: Friday July 25th 1:00—4:00 PM
Where: New Orleans Mosquito Control Authority Training Room
2100 Leon C Simon Blvd (near Elysian Fields)
