Saturday’s Lake Sweep cancelled

September 12, 2017

SPARTANBURG - Spartanburg Water’s 29th Annual Lake Sweep, scheduled for Saturday, September 16, at Lake Bowen Landing, has been cancelled because of safety concerns of having volunteers on roadways and waterways after the major weather event Hurricane Irma, and the need to focus resources in other areas.

South Carolina Department of Natural Resources has also cancelled Saturday’s statewide Beach and River Sweeps. 

We greatly appreciate everyone who registered to volunteer for Lake Sweep, and ask that you join us next year as we celebrate the 30th year of this event.
