This large pond is a public swimming, fishing and boating area that contributes to the trash found there.

Leather sole from a shoe!

Broken glass pieces

Rusted cans

After 18 years of underwater cleanups in this public pond it is very clean and I will look for another public body of water to start cleaning up next time!!
