Welcome to the Lake Wylie Riversweep website! We are celebrating our 11th annual Riversweep event this year with our dedicated and loyal volunteers. The Lake Wylie Riversweep organization is sponsored by the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation, the Lake Wylie Covekeepers, the Lake Wylie Marine Commission, and many other groups and individuals. We are a volunteer member organization formed to help protect Lake Wylie, and we are excited that you have chosen to check us out. Please consider volunteering your time to help us keep Lake Wylie clean! A special thank you goes out to Food Lion for their continued sponsorship, and their hardworking volunteers pictured in the photo below.
Every year, approximately 30 tons of trash are dumped in and around Lake Wylie. One of the primary events sponsored by our organization is the Lake Wylie Riversweep. It is held on the first Saturday of every October at numerous sites around the lake. Our volunteers get together on this day to devote their time, energy, and resources to remove trash, debris, and litter that has been dumped or accumulated in the lake. These volunteers are devoted to Lake Wylie, and they are passionate about keeping the area clean and the environment healthy.
