It is our third year of cleaning this same piece of river in Cortland County as a 4H project. We have never seen the river so swollen and clearly the banks were under water not too long ago. Last year we could cross the river hopping from rock to rock or walking through in tall boots, careful to keep the water level below the top rim. This year we saw kayakers. We collected enough trash to keep things interesting including a bowling ball but mostly food wrappers. The mosquitoes found us.
