Douglas Organizes Buffalo Bayou Clean-up
Lizanne Douglas, Treatment Transportation & Utilities, Houston, organized a Young Professionals Buffalo Bayou Clean-up as part of the Young Professionals Southeast Texas Section AWWA branch. Volunteers helped clean up a park after heavy rains that flooded the Bayou the previous weeks caused debris to get trapped in trees and areas along the park trails.
The Buffalo Bayou Partnership provided all the tools, gloves and trash bags for the volunteers. Light refreshments were served in the morning and lunch was provided courtesy of TAWWA for about 13 volunteers who showed up to help that rainy morning. Activities were cut short as the weather got worse, but the rain did not stop the volunteers at first, who made the best of the situation by making garbage bag overalls.
