Boone Lake Cleanup Day nets seven tons of trash collected
Seven tons of trash was cleared from Boone Lake during an annual cleanup day last month.
The Tennessee Valley Authority says despite the rain during the event on April 24, crews and volunteers were able to collect a large amount of trash that also included 67 tires and 72 blocks of styrofoam. Nearly 500 TVA-donated trash bags were issued during the cleanup.
The TVA is nearing the completion of the six year long Boone Dam repair project and water levels are being raised to its normal summer levels for the first time since a sinkhole was discovered in October of 2014.
