LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The 2018 Kentucky River Clean Sweep has been rescheduled for Saturday, August 18. A high water level caused the event – originally scheduled in June – to be postponed.

Volunteers are needed to collect trash from the 12 miles of the Kentucky River that border Fayette County. You can register for the event at www.riversweep2018.eventbrite.com.

Volunteers should gather at the Clays Ferry Boat Dock off KY 25 under the I-75 overpass starting at 8:30 a.m. If you are using GPS to locate the River Sweep, use the address 9079 Old Richmond Road, Lexington, KY 40515. There will be signs to direct you to the parking area.

Trash bags, gloves and lunch will be provided. Participants should wear clothing that can get wet and boots or close-toed shoes. The River Sweep is a rain or shine event, so dress for the weather. Volunteers who own life vests are encouraged to bring them. A limited number will be available for participants to borrow.

We are especially in need of boats, so if you or a friend can bring a boat, that would be a great help. Contact louisec@lexingtonky.gov if you are bringing a boat and have space for additional volunteers.

Volunteers under 18 years of age must have a liability release waiver signed by their parent or guardian. Waivers will be provided at the registration tent on the day of the River Sweep or can be downloaded from the registration website and brought to the event.

The event is sponsored by the city of Lexington, the Kentucky River Authority and the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission.
