CharMeck Adopt-a-Stream Clean

Mar 23, 2018

Smiles from the Team
Beautiful Day for Community Work

We had beautiful weather for Epic Capital’s stream clean effort today. This is part of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services Adopt A Stream program. Our section is across Park Road from the pond at Park Road Park. It was an extraordinary experience on many fronts. It’s amazing what disregard some have for our environment. Plastic bottles, and big gulp styrofoam cups everywhere. They simply don’t decompose. Glass bottles and cans too. We also came across someone’s personal belongings and a make-shift camp sight for someone who is obviously homeless. Other findings included Softballs (4), tennis balls (8-10), flip-flops (2), rubber gloves (3), tire (1), Street sign post (1), hypodermic needle (1), license plate (1), Nerf darts (5-6). Total collected: about 3 large garbage bags of discard or should we say “disregard”. It’s such a great program, and you can instantly see the results of your efforts.
