The Iowa River Clean-up Project scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016 has been cancelled due to significant rain in the Iowa River watershed upstream of Iowa City. 

Unfortunately, the resultant increase in river stage will make the bulk of the trash inaccessible, minimizing the impact of the event. 

We appreciate everyone’s help and our sponsors in getting ready for this event. We will be planning another cleanup in 2017. To stay in the loop about similar events be sure to like City of Iowa City Stormwater Volunteer Opportunities on Facebook.
