Norris Lake is one of East Tennessee’s most loved recreation destinations, but the garbage that is constantly dumped in the lake is causing an eye sore. Therefore the five counties that contain Norris Lake have banned together to clean up the problem. Volunteers from Anderson, Campbell, Claiborne, Grainger and Union counties are needed. The Clean Up will take place on the 4th Saturday of March. For more information on where to meet for clean-up and how you can volunteer to help, call 1-800-524-3602 or visit www.norrislakeproject.com.
What the Result Will Be
Norris Lake is an East Tennessee treasure and we want it to stay that way. With the help of volunteers cutting up firewood and stacking it on the islands, we will help decrease the number of live trees that are cut down for firewood. Also, removing trash and debris from the shorelines of Norris Lake will help retain its natural beauty.
