Aqua Illinois, in association with the Lake Vermilion Water Quality Coalition, also will be sponsoring the 16th annual Lake Vermilion Clean-Up Day on Friday, May 25 from 8:00 a.m. until 12 p.m. The event, which will begin at Lake Vermilion County Park, is designed to enhance the natural beauty and overall cleanliness of Lake Vermilion.
The clean-up will concentrate on debris in the lake and debris along the shoreline. Residents living on the lake that would like debris removed from the shoreline should have it bagged, boxed, or neatly piled and make items plainly visible for removal.
Clean-up participants should arrive no later than 8:00 a.m. and will be provided with gloves, but should wear appropriate clothing and be prepared for inclement weather.
