MIASF holds annual waterway cleanup


The Marine Industries Association of South Florida this weekend held its 33rd annual waterway cleanup, removing 15 tons of trash from Broward County's waterways, rivers and canals.

More than 1,800 volunteers took part in the event at 25 sites in the area.

An inaugural Year-Round Environmental Stewardship Award was presented to Arnaldo "Arnie" Correia for his dedication to maintaining the health of South Florida's waterways and community throughout the year.

"It is largely due to the efforts of individuals like Arnie as well as service groups and organizations that help clean up our waterways year-round that we are able to celebrate the fact that we see fewer and fewer tons of trash removed from our waterways each year," said Gordon Connell, MIASF's director of association services, in a statement.
