Mayor Janice S. Mironov and council members joined local volunteers, Girl Scout Troop 70756 and other scouts, and area residents, to participate in the annual Stream Cleanup Event co-sponsored by the Watershed Institute at Etra Lake Park on April 23.

East Windsor Township and The Watershed Institute co-sponsored, in cooperation with the Americorps Watershed Ambassador Program, a stream cleanup at Etra Lake Park in East Windsor.

More than 70 volunteers, young and adult, joined in the stream cleanup on April 23, collecting over 347 pounds of trash and recyclables at the park on Disbrow Road, according to information provided by the township.

The purpose of this cleanup was to remove litter from local watershed streams, helping to keep water sources clean and provide for cleaner and more environmentally healthy streams, especially in honor of Earth Day, according to the statement.
