Clean-Up Event Underway

Posted: Updated:

Day one of the River Valley Clean-up kicked off today in hopes of cleaning up parts of Minot which remain untouched after the flood.

The Petroleum Council, Enbridge and the City of Minot came together to create a project to remove weeds and other debris around the levee's around the city.

Volunteers began as early as 8 AM cutting, trimming, weedwacking, pulling weeds and removing unwanted objects in hopes of making the city lots look a little cleaner.

Forest Road around 16th Street was one of the major focuses today for the clean-up.

As long as the weather holds up, tomorrow will be focused on the dikes by the water treatment plant and under the Burdick Bridge.

One Enbridge employee believes its important to volunteer because it shows pride in where you live.

Katie Haarsager, Community Relations Advisor, Enbridge) "All of us live, work and play in all of the communities that we are involved in so we want to make sure that we give back as much as possible. We have a big effect, we have a lot of employees, we have a lot of economic boom happening in this area right now, so the more we can in those communities I think can help create a ripple effect."

If you are interested in volunteering, stop down to the Arrowhead Mall parking lot for assignment.
