Volunteers to begin debris removal along Kinchafoonee Creek

Kichafoonee Creek Cleanup

LEE CO., GA (WALB) - After months of high water on a Lee County creek, volunteers will begin to clean up Hurricane Michael debris this weekend.

If you’ve been around the Kinchafoonee Creek since Hurricane Michael, you’ve probably noticed a lot of debris in and along the creek.

WALB News 10 first told you about Lee County leaders warning creek-goers of dangerous conditions back in early November.

Our cameras caught trees and other debris in and along the creek in several locations.

Since Hurricane Michael, water levels have been too high for volunteers to safely reach and remove the debris.

Now that the weather is warming up and creek levels are going down, volunteers will tackle debris clean up along the creek.

Volunteers will continue to work on clearing up the debris when weather and water levels permit.
