River Access/Blueways

River Sweep Information:

Thank you to all of our volunteers & partners for helping to keep the Upstate beautiful and our rivers clean for generations to come. This year we were collectively able to clean up multiple sites along the Pacolet River & Tyger River.

Pacolet River Sweep:
The 2016 Pacolet River Sweep was a great success! We had a total of 55 participants of all ages who worked to clean the banks of the Pacolet River. Together, we collected 50+ bags of trash and debris. This event was able to help clean up our blueways system by removing trash & debris to help make our water system cleaner for all to enjoy. Big thanks to all of our volunteers and our partners at SJWD Water District, Clemson Extension and the Environmental Enforcement Officers with Spartanburg County Litter Control.

Lyman Lake:
The 2016 Lyman Lake Sweep was a huge success! We had a total of 45 participants of all ages who worked to clean the banks of Lyman Lake. Kayakers & hikers collected over 77+ bags of trash and debris. This event was able to help clean up our blueways system by removing trash & debris to make our water system cleaner for all to enjoy. Big thanks to all of our volunteers and our partners at SJWD Water District, Clemson Extension and the Environmental Enforcement Officers with Spartanburg County Litter Control.
