LWPOA and Alabama Power Company conduct a cleanup of the shoreline areas of the lake during October of each year. This project has recurred annually for many years. Over that period, hundreds of tons of trash have been collected by LWPOA and community volunteers and Alabama Power Company Crews.
Local Businesses provide meals and refreshments for the volunteers, containers for trash, and pontoon boats and barges. County Officials provide support for the effort through provision of trash disposal and the services of Community Workers. Each year, LWPOA volunteers provide hundreds of person days and the use of boats. LWPOA budgets and pays the cost of fuel.
You can do your part, by volunteering for the effort. Just contact Marlon or Betty Glover, Lake Clean-up Committee Chairpersons, or Sheila Smith of Alabama Power Company (see contact information on the "Our Mission" page). You can also help by encouraging your friends, neighbors and acquaintances to control their trash by providing for a secure trash container on boats and in vehicles and in proper disposal of trash.
Please join in to help keep our lake beautiful! Lake clean up is October 23rd-25th each day from 8am until 12pm. Come each day or just one! Lunch will be provided each day. You might be surprised at how much fun it is picking up trash!!
Dress according to the weather but long pants are recommended.
