Volunteers work hard to clean up Rainbow River

Published May 16, 2015
Dozens of volunteers scoured portions of the Rainbow River Saturday from kayaks, canoes and pontoon boats, picking up trash and ecology-damaging items during the annual Rainbow River Conservation Clean Up Day.

The Rainbow River runs 5.7 miles from the 400-million-gallons-a-day main Rainbow Springs at the north to the “conflux” with the Withlacoochee River at a speed of about 1.5 knots. The river has a depth from eight to 15 feet, with some deeper areasm according to the Marion County website (www.marioncountyfl.org).
