Here is your chance to help keep Lake Ouachita Clean And Green. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Lake Ouachita, has developed and is implementing the innovated idea “Adopt-A-Shoreline - Island” Program.
Individuals, organization, or companies will be able to select a portion of Lake Ouachita shoreline or an island and keep it free of trash, tires, cans, etc.
In an effort to reduce trash around the
shoreline and on the islands the Lake Ouachita Corps of Engineers hopes
to have areas of the lake “Adopted” and litter removed to enhance the
adventures of visiting Lake Ouachita. Unlike some C.O.E lakes, Islands
on lake Ouachita are open for camping.
According to the C.O.E. organization can pick up litter as many times as they think necessary to keep the area litter free. The Corps recommends an adopted area be picked up at least twice a year, one suggested pick up time is in September, which is “Keep Arkansas Beautiful” month.
The Lake Ouachita Corps of Engineers will
furnish trash bags at no charge and help to remove the trash and other
debris from a designated pick-up point If you are unable to dispose of
the litter you have picked up.
