Are you interested in cleaning up your environment? Are you looking to do something to improve your community? Well here is your chance; May 11th through May 18th the Tioga County Water Quality Coordinating Committee will be holding their 19th annual stream cleanup event. All you need to do is register with the Tioga County Soil and Water Conservation District. If you decide to volunteer you can select any stream within Tioga County to cleanup and will receive free trash bags, gloves, and gift for all participants to commemorate the event.


The Soil & Water Conservation District and the town highway departments also partner in this event to coordinate pickup, disposal and then transport the collected trash to Taylor’s Garbage Service in Owego. If you are interested in registering a group for this year’s stream cleanup program or sponsoring the event, please contact Miranda Palmer at the Soil and Water Conservation District or stop by the office Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on 183 Corporate Drive in Owego.
