Rainfall on almost 2,000 square miles of watershed provides water for Jordan Lake. When it rains, not only water washes off the land but also trash. Clean Jordan Lake (www.cleanjordanlake.org) volunteers have been removing a 30-year legacy of trash from the shoreline, going back to when the lack was filled. Like repeated rainfalls that keep trash coming to the lake, our volunteers must also remove trash left behind by repeated visits of recreational users to the shoreline. Our volunteers are trying hard to keep up with the problem but many more volunteers are needed. The long range solution is through tighter control of anti-litter and illegal dumping laws in the 8 counties in the watershed and more aggressive recycling programs that Clean Jordan Lake wants to promote.
