Debris Cleanup in Ketchikan


by Angela Krenzien

A five year endeavor to clean up seven miles of shoreline on Gravina Island has come to an end.

During those five years, about 140 tons of debris were cleared. Officials say among the debris removed were 41 boats, crab pots, batteries, and wire rope

More than 80 volunteers took part in the clean up, putting in more than 2,500 hours of work.
