Chicago River Day
May 17th, 2016
On Saturday, May 14th, CBBEL was the site sponsor for one of more than 60 river cleanups for Chicago River day. Monica Giermek (Water Resources Department) organized the cleanup with CBBEL employees as well as Calumet Stormwater Collaborative members. Participants filled over 50 garbage bags of litter along a section of the Little Calumet River in Blue Island. In addition to providing refreshments during the cleanup, CBBEL sponsored lunch and a social hour in downtown Blue Island, which was a great chance for everyone to warm up after the cleanup!
