An Albemarle County lagoon is much cleaner after volunteers got together to pick up trash Saturday. The county hosted a clean-up in the Woodbrook Lagoons Stormwater Management Area as part of the Rivanna Conservation Society's “Go X-Stream Makeover Project.”

Volunteers of all ages showed up with gloves and trash bags. Project organizer Mary Butcher says the clean-up serves two purposes.

“First of all, the aesthetics, just cleaning up the area and second, so you don't have plastic water bottles floating down the river and getting stuck in animals and affecting the wild life here,” she said.

Neighbors say the lagoon in Woodbrook has had major problems with trash, ticks, and mosquitos, so they were glad to see the volunteers cleaning up the area.
