COAL CREEK DEADWOOD REMOVAL DAY 2002

TO HELP PREVENT FLOODING

Saturday, August 3, 2002
 

Who: Adult volunteers to help remove deadwood and debris accumulating at bridge piers

When: Saturday, August 3, 2002 from 8:00 am until noon

Where: Meet at 8:00 am at Briceville Elementary School for assignments. Briceville is about 4 miles southwest of Lake City off Highway 116. Work at your assigned location until noon and then return to the school where the church ladies from the watershed will serve lunch.

Why: Many communities in East Tennessee flooded in March 2002, but not the homes in Coal Creek. One reason is because of our past work days removing deadwood and debris that accumulated at bridge piers. If we keep the deadwood and debris cleaned out, the folks are less likely to "get their feet wet" from Coal Creek.

How: Volunteers are needed to work in the water and on the banks at bridges. Anderson County Sheriff’s Department work crews and equipment furnished by Anderson County and volunteers will be used to assist with the removal, but much of the work will require hand labor. Bring your chain saws, boots, and protective equipment if you have them. Gloves will be provided.
