311. That’s the number of tires PWD’s Waterways Restoration Team pulled out of Frankford Creek in early February.
The Waterways Restoration Team is dedicated to cleaning up and protecting Philadelphia’s streams, which often means pulling illegally dumped tires, construction site waste, shopping carts, and the occasional car out of our waterways.
Additionally, the Waterways Restoration Team helps to stabilize eroding creek banks, remove invasive plants and protect City infrastructure. Cleaning up our waterways improves the City’s valuable water resources: the streams we walk, run and bike along and the water we drink!
