Chilliwack River flows behind garbage left behind by weekend partiers in August.


took another trip to the CVR this week to check out some other areas that I had not visited on my last trip that was after the August long weekend. You also may have seen the editorial Chilliwack Progress editor Greg Knill did on the issue after my report from a recent observation of this continuing problem in the Valley.

I also went up the road to Foley Lake and through the Bench Road area. I also drove into the Ranger Run that I did not on my last trip, it was particularly bad as photo's 2942 to 2945 show. Around Foley Lake was a mess too. Note photo 2937 where the bears had ripped the garbage container garbage at the bin by Edwards Road, this is what happens when the bins become full and are not emptied.

Hopefully we have a good turnout on the Chilliwack Vedder River Cleanup Societies BC Rivers Day event on September 26 and will be able to address some of these areas that is a disgrace to our beautiful Chilliwack River Valley.
