Flooding along the Missouri River didn’t stop the River Relief team and volunteers from having a successful cleanup earlier this spring in Washington.

The cleanup, which was held simultaneously with this year’s Riverfest in April, netted 2.7 tons of trash along a five-mile stretch of riverbanks, which included the Riverfront Trail, Riverfront Park, Lions Lake, Tiemann Drive, Dundee Road and River Access and some scour holes along Augusta Bottom Road.
