Why Clean Up The Lake?

Did You Know…

60% of water pollution comes not from industrial sources, but from leaking oil, fertilizers, & pet wastes from households like yours.

180M

Americans spill 180 million gallons of oil into our waters each year—16 times the amount spilled by the Exxon-Valdez.

Our sewers & storm systems are separate. That means that whatever goes into storm drains flows directly into the environment untreated.

1 Pint

1 pint of oil can produce a slick larger than a football field.

Our community deserves better…& as the best lakers, we’re just the people to do it!

LET'S GET AFTER IT!

OUR SPONSORS

DIVE TO THRIVE

We don't just want to clean the top of the lake, we want to get to the bottom of it too! 

Join the LAKE LOVERS UNITED: PLX LAKE CLEANUP diving competition and WIN PRIZES to pick up sunken litter at the bottom of Portage Lakes.

LET'S GET DEEP INTO IT!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the WET Initiative & what’s it all about?

The WET Initiative is a non-profit aiming to promote sustainability by providing safe clean water in & around lakes that are often used for recreation. Events like Lake Lovers United: PLX Lake Clean Up are part of our mission to create healthier waterways free from oil pollution, litter, storm drains, & various other pollutants.

We want to empower lakers to take ownership of their community so they can have even more fun getting wet.

Where are we meeting and how do I register?

The event will be held in the Portage Lakes, Ohio. If you are receiving a free kayak, you will be meeting at your designated launch location and will register there. If you are using your own watercraft, refer to the list of registration locations and start there!

How long will the event last?

Can I pick up trash by myself or work with a team?

You can participate by yourself or with a team. The important thing is to clean up the lakes and have some fun!

What are the prizes?

Does it cost anything to enter?

Participating is completely free, and so is a kayak if you sign up in time… but we also HIGHLY recommended purchasing a PLX Clean Up Kit after you sign up. It contains everything you need to clean up the lake, plus some other surprises we’ve thrown in.
