Litter Gitter data driving sustainable solutions in Dog River

Dog River Clearwater Revival is a grassroots movement that began in 1994 and quickly developed into a full-fledged 501(c)3 nonprofit with the mission of improving the water quality of the Dog River Watershed.

Together with the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program, Litter Gitters were installed over time in three locations across Dog River.

Our groups are working together toassess how the Dog River Watershed model may be used to help ongoing efforts to reduce litter impacts in Dog River and it’s associated tributaries.

How do we develop these solutions? Through the data we collect at each site. It’s more than just picking up litter – we’re collecting data to determine the source of litter so we can develop global, sustainable solutions at our sites.

We’re excited to see the progress made at these sites and to work with the DRCR in the coming months to install more as part of their EPA/GOMP grant.

The patented Litter Gitter is a tactical in-stream litter collection device used to intercept floating litter from stormwater runoff.
