The Nashville Clean Water Project will host its third volunteer cleanup in a year from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, May 2, to reclaim more than an estimated 200 tons of trash left by campers, fishermen and recreational users at Percy Priest Lake.

Volunteers should converge at the lake via Nashville Shores water park for scheduled shuttles to islands on pontoon boats donated by partnering marinas. The last boats will depart at 2 p.m.

To help ensure a well-organized event, organizers ask anyone interested in volunteering to pre-register at www.cleanPercyPriest.org. Because of potential hazards, the event is restricted to volunteers at least 16 years old.

Nashville Clean Water Project's major supporters include Team Green, Envolve Strategies, Nashville Shores, Waste Management, the Cumberland River Compact, Hunt Brothers Pizza, thinkMEDIA, Lightning 100, Elm Hill Marina, Whole Foods, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and Nashville Interactive.
