Stream Cleanup in Bangor 

A group of folks in the greater Bangor area carried the spirit of Earth Day into the weekend.Members of the Bangor Area Storm Water Group got together Saturday to take part in the fourth annual Regional Stream Cleanup.The event is spread out through April and May and spans seven communities.On Saturday, volunteers did their best to tackle the Penjajawoc Stream off Stillwater Ave in Bangor. “For beautification, for people to sort of enjoy and walk through. When they come out of Hannaford they can see this nice clean area with wildlife and see the river running through. After another 6 or 7 weeks, there’ll be a lot of vegetation and it’ll be very nice.”The mission of the Storm Water Group is to protect water quality, while building community awareness about storm water pollution.They’ll spend the next six weeks or so cleaning up local waterways in Brewer, Orono, Old Town, Veazie, Hampden and Milford…and on the Umaine campus.
