Hiawassee GA - 7th Annual Lake Chatuge shoreline cleanup set for November 4

On Saturday, November 4, 2017, the Hiwassee River Watershed Coalition will host its 7th Annual Lake Chatuge Shoreline Cleanup. The effort will again be in coordination with Rivers Alive Georgia's Annual Waterway Cleanup; however, teams will be picking up trash on both sides of the state line.

The cleanup event will kick off at 9:00 am at the Towns County Swim Beach Pavilion with breakfast and coffee. The first 100 volunteers to sign-in will receive a free t-shirt. Team leaders will direct groups to designated trash sites along the shores of Lake Chatuge and we'll meet back at the Swim Beach pavilion at noon for prizes and pizza donated by Papas Pizza To-Go in Hiawassee.

During the 2016 Lake Chatuge Cleanup, 71 volunteers removed over 1,200 pounds of trash from the shoreline in only three hours! In the last six years 6.75 TONS of trash has been removed during this cleanup event from the Lake Chatuge shoreline. The challenge is on to beat last year's record!

The 2017 Lake Chatuge Shoreline Cleanup is made possible by our partners and sponsors including: Tennessee Valley Authority, Georgia Rivers Alive, USFS Blue Ridge Ranger District, Towns County Government, Papas Pizza To-Go, and the Towns County Chamber of Commerce.

The Hiwassee River Watershed Coalition is a 22-year-old local non-profit organization that is dedicated to sustaining good water quality in rivers, lakes and streams in north Georgia and western North Carolina. For more information about HRWC or to join, visit the website at
