Creek Week


What a great turnout for the 2017 Creek Week cleanup event! 


Twenty-three organizations, 81 groups and 2,592 citizens removed 30 tons of litter and debris! The value of this community service is estimated to be $156,385! 

What is Creek Week?

Creek Week is a 9-day, watershed-wide litter and debris collection event. Service groups, neighborhood associations, scouts, schools, churches and individuals all donate their time to help clean-up the Fountain Creek watershed. The event is also a chance to raise awareness about the watershed, our water supply, the district and the littering issue to make our communities cleaner, safer and more beautiful.
