Local officials involved in the clean up event of local marinas early
last week were happy with the accomplishments with an eye cast for the future. The Superior Watershed Partnership (SWP), using funding awarded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Marine Debris Program, hosted the event on Tuesday, of
last week for Keweenaw Bay Indian Community’s Ojibwa Marina and the other Baraga County marinas. This was SWP’s second community marina cleanup event this year following the annual Marquette Lower Harbor Cleanup event held in August.
