A gathering to share information and launch planning of a comprehensive clean-up project in the Upper Big Sandy Watershed, led by StreamSweepers, the Thompson Charitable Foundation, and other local partners. The vision for this 20-year project is the removal and recycling of solid waste in the Levisa Fork, Russell Fork, and Tug Rivers in Southwest Virginia, Eastern Kentucky, and Southeastern West Virginia, followed by comprehensive invasive species management. This project will support economic development in the region, including the construction of interstate state-of-the-art recycling and compost-biochar facilities.
