Each year, we clean up our local lake in the Lake Travis Underwater and Shoreline Cleanup. In 2015, 350 dive volunteers collected 3.38 tons of trash! We'd like to also keep it clean throughout the year.
Did you know this is a source for drinking water in Austin?
We all like to enjoy the lake, so let's keep it enjoyable for everyone.
Trash doesn't disappear when it is tossed overboard, whether intentionally or by accident. Be a good steward and place trash in bins on boats or dispose of trash in cans when you get back to shore.
If you don't want to put your waste in a trash bin, save cans and plastic for the recycling bin at home. Bring a mesh bag and help others party responsibly.
Plastic never disappears. It breaks down into tiny pieces, but it doesn't go away. To make sure it's never there, decline plastic straws and bring refillable water containers rather than using plastic water bottles. You are a powerful person with the ability to improve our landscape.
