Cleanup at Kearny Boathouse

PVSC conducted a cleanup in March of the grounds surrounding the Kearny High School Boathouse, which is situated on the Passaic River. The school’s crew team uses the boathouse extensively for their races and practices. More than 100 students, teachers, and parents turned out for the event.


On both sides of the Passaic, members of the PVSC River Restoration Program and volunteers walked the banks of the river, collecting various forms of debris. Bags, rakes and work gloves were distributed to volunteers by PVSC. The cleanup has been taking place annually since 2009.


“As part of our ongoing efforts to preserve and protect our local waterways, PVSC regularly removes debris from the Passaic River,” said PVSC Executive Director Greg Tramontozzi. “These cleanups dramatically improve recreational uses of these waterways. With the crew season underway, PVSC knows that this portion of the Passaic River will be in full use, and we are proud to help prepare the course.”
