The Belmont Bay Paddlers, residents of the Belmont Bay and other volunteers came out on June 22 for another big cleanup of the Belmont Bay. Under the leadership of Myra Lau, several tires, plastic bottles, barrels and other debris were intercepted from making its way into the Chesapeake Bay. Water quality awareness is a major goal for the Belmont Bay Paddlers as they support the District’s Water Quality programs to promote more liter and trash awareness for a beautiful Prince William County.

Kudos to the Belmont Bay Paddlers and all the volunteers for a successful summer event! Among other debris, tires have been a major issue during cleanup events at the Belmont Bay. Although the sources of these tires are not clear, it is strongly believed most of the tires come from dumping over the Route 1 Occoquan Bridge.
