Truckee River Cleanup/Invasive Weeds 2016
KTMB’s Fall Truckee River Clean-up Day serves as a tribute to John Champion and his love of the Truckee River. Champions of the Truckee and Truckee River Yacht Club volunteers organized this event until 2004 when KTMB became involved to provide staff support. Sites are identified by park staff and project partners as areas in need of litter pickup and trash removal, tree wrapping, weed pulling, mulch spreading (to prevent soil erosion), graffiti removal and storm drain stenciling.
TMWA receives a direct water quality benefit from this program, especially in regards to raw water quality entering the Glendale Water Treatment Facility.
