Volunteers sought for fall lake cleanup

The Norris Lake Project Team is calling for volunteers to lend a helping hand in the 14th-annual fall five-county Norris Lake cleanup.

Including Anderson, Campbell, Claiborne, Union and Grainger counties, the event takes place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16.

This event aims to preserve the natural beauty and conserve the resources of the Norris Lake watershed area.

The cleanup effort will be conducted where the Powell and Clinch rivers converge.

There will be two launch locations: Anderson County Park and Shanghai Resort and Marina.

Volunteers will have access to boats that will transport them to and from cleanup sites inaccessible by land.

Aditionally, barges will be utilized to transport collected trash back to the shore.

Volunteers with boats are encouraged to bring them to assist in the efforts.

All volunteers are asked to wear appropriate footwear, preferably boots. Volunteers should also bring gloves and life jackets if they have them, especially for youth participants.

Minors must be accompanied by an adult and are required to have a registration and release form signed by a parent.

To register as a volunteer or obtain further information about the event, visit the website norrislakeproject.com.

Registration can also be completed on-site on the morning of the cleanup.
