Volunteers from the Codorus Creek Watershed Association and the York County
Solid Waste Authority recently combined efforts & used the power of teamwork to clean up an illegal dump site along the
banks of the Codorus Creek.
The site, located under the Route 30 Bridge in Springettsbury Township, is along
the east bank of the Codorus Creek, where the creek continues its journey from the urbanized areas of York into, and through,
the increasingly rural areas north and east of York City. Many years' worth of garbage and debris had piled up along the banks
in this area.
This accumulation of discarded items was a detriment to the environment and adversely affected the
aesthetics of the area. Additionally, the cleanup site is part of the planned route of the Northern Extension of the Heritage
Rail Trail, a valued asset in York and part of the York County Parks System.
Cleaning up this area, therefore, served many purposes and will go a long way to
promote, and maintain, the beauty of this historic waterway!
