HVA Volunteer Stream Team members cleaned sections of the Tenmile River, removing some of the debris they found when they originally surveyed the river. The debris included household trash, construction materials, paintbrushes, siding, caulking tubes, couches, chairs, appliances and glass bottles.
Another challenge facing the river is ATV (all terrain vehicle) use that degrades the soil and erodes the river banks.
