Clean Jordan Lake is a 501(c)(3) grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring the natural habitat, beautifying the shoreline and protecting water quality by removal of trash and litter.  Stormwater flows carry large and small trash items from feeder streams into the lake. These deposit on the shoreline of remote coves, for example, along the Haw River Arm of the lake.  Litter generated by shoreline recreational use is another huge problem. Although far less in volume than trash from stormwater, litter is more directly in the public eye and pervasive: clean it up and within a month it reappears! Since its incorporation in July 2009, CJL has recruited nearly 2,900 volunteers who have removed over 2,700 tires and 6,800 bags (that's 68 tons!) of trash and litter in 47 cleanup events, including our Adopt-A-Shoreline Program.  About 15 miles of shoreline have been cleaned with another 10 miles of critical sections to go.

Details of general public cleanup events are posted on this web site. Groups may schedule their own cleanups or participate in our  new Adopt-A-Shoreline program.  Visit our website
