The fourth annual Sweep The Hooch event and its 580 volunteers pulled a record 7.3 tons of trash from the Chattahoochee River this weekend. One more time: 7.3 TONS of debris in a single day. The river provides 70 percent of metro Atlanta's water and roughly 99 percent (per our fictional but very scientific study) of tubing and shootin' the 'Hooch shenanigans for metro Atlantans, so maybe we can all agree to stop using it as a landfill, yeah?
