Stretch Of A River Is Clean Again

It cost 1.2 million dollars and a lot of man hours, but now a stretch of the Big Sandy River is clean again.

Crews had to build a road just to get to the project.

Then a seven man crew spent five weeks getting 30 thousand tons of piled up bridge trash out of the Levisa Fork of the Big Sandy River.

Workers say the biggest problem was keeping the garbage from floating down the river.

All together, crews removed 264 truck loads of smelly river trash that was pinned against a bridge.
