Photos: Volunteers 'redd up' river bank around Sewickley

Tuesday, June 18, 2013, 4:30 p.m.
 

Volunteers at three sites in the Sewickley Valley removed litter and debris from the banks of the Ohio River on Saturday during the annual Ohio River Sweep.

The event — which began in 1989 — is organized by the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission.

More than 20,000 volunteers last year participated in cleanup sites from the river's start in downtown Pittsburgh to its end in Cairo, Ill. They collected more than 20,000 tons of debris.
