The annual Pompeston Creek Watershed Association cleanup will be tomorrow at 10 a.m.
Get a little dirty tomorrow with other volunteers and members of the Pompeston Creek Watershed Association (PCWA) as the 8th annual creek cleanup at Fountain Farms Park takes place. The yearly event runs from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to clean up debris, trash and pull invasive plants out of the creek that runs through Cinnaminson and out to the Delaware River. Debbie Lord, member of the PCWA, said there’s a big debris jam near Willow Drive so the group will work to clean that up. “And we’ll walk upstream and downstream and pick up trash,” she said. You never really know what you’ll find while cleaning up the creek, Lord said. In recent years, the group has pulled out mattresses, a washing machine, fencing, bicycles and chairs. Two years ago, …

The brand new play structure at Fountain Farms Park is nearing completion and a ribbon cutting to officially open it will be held Friday afternoon.

The Pompeston Creek cleanup this weekend is not only about keeping the water healthy, but letting residents know it exists, and it needs help.
The Fountain Farms Park cleanup scheduled for Saturday is not just about pulling tires, bicycles and other trash out of the Pompeston Creek; it’s about awareness. “It’s been here such a long time, it’s really a historic little creek,” said Beth Bresnahan, member of the Pompeston Creek Watershed Association, the group behind the cleanup. “We just try to make it healthy and make people aware of it. People aren’t even aware of it.” The Pompeston Creek runs through Cinnaminson, Moorestown, Riverton, Riverside and Delran. The PCWA works to keep the waterway clean and protect the wetlands that surround it. The group is heading up its annual cleanup day at Fountain Farms, a main part of the creek where water flows down into Lakeview. Bresnahan …
