Annual Trashing of Twin Buttes
The July 4th holiday weekend generates huge amounts of trash at Twin Buttes Reservoir. The City maintained park on the North Shore of the North Pool gets the most fireworks trash, followed by the Equalization Channel. The South Pool is currently locked and not available to the public due to pumping. As the South Pool recedes other trash becomes apparent, glass bottles, trot lines with dozens of sharp fish hooks, a fire extinguisher and numerous trot line anchors.
I expect this year's trash to be the most in awhile, as prior years had burn and fireworks bans.
