Volunteer, Community-Wide Stream Clean-Up Event, Goodlettsville & Millersville
The Cities of Millersville, Goodlettsville and the Stream Watch Committee
Are spearheading Community-Wide Stream Clean-Up Event
The cities of Millersville, Goodlettsville and the Stream Watch Committee
are hosting a community-wide stream clean-up event on
Saturday, March 2,2013, from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
Staging areas will be throughout Millersville and Goodlettsville.
Gloves, bags, t-shirts, snacks, certificates, and the opportunity to help make a difference in your local community and watershed, are provided!
Your community’s stormwater departments are working together with Stream Watch and local
volunteers, such as yourself, to clean up and maintain the area’s water resources, in part,
through clean-up efforts of our local streams. Slater’s Creek, Mansker Creek, and Dry Creek are
impaired, urban streams that are in need of community action.
You, your friends, and family can help us! “Community involvement has increased with each
event and we are expecting a sizeable turnout,” states Karen Smith Codes Administrator for the
City of Millersville. Due to the increase in volunteers wanting to give back to their community,
we have arranged to have four entry point sites throughout the community.
Mansker Creek – Ridge
Hill Drive (Millersville),
Slater’s Creek – Millersville Community Center on Louisville Highway (Millersville),
Mansker Creek – Old Stone Bridge Road at Springfield Highway (Goodlettsville),
Dry Creek – Dry Creek Road at Robert Cartwright Drive (Goodlettsville).
Bright yellow stream clean-up signage will indicate the entry point areas.
“The community involvement in this close-knit area is exceptional. This clean-up arose from
local citizens who were concerned about the life and water quality of the creeks. They want to
make a positive difference, so we’ve come together to organize a true, community-wide event, ”states Amy Murray with the City of Goodlettsville.
Citizens who are interested in local water quality and the health of our local water bodies are also encouraged to meet with the Stream Watch Committee. For more information on the award-
