NRT, an OBG Company, cleans up Milwaukee River Basin on Earth DayOBG News,
On Earth Day, April 22, 2017, NRT, an OBG Company (NRT), sponsored and participated in the Milwaukee Riverkeeper’s Annual Spring River Cleanup for the fourth consecutive year. NRT representatives and their families joined nearly 4,000 other volunteers across the Milwaukee River Basin to pick up trash to help Milwaukee Riverkeeper achieve swimmable, fishable rivers. As part of this event, NRT launched a boat to assist the community with cleanup around the island and shoreline at Estabrook Park, located on the east side of the Milwaukee River.
Following the cleanup, the NRT team took part in the event's after-pary celebration of Earth Day with food and a concert powered by bicycles and solar panels.
This event is part of NRT’s continuing commitment to support the local community and environmental efforts aligned with the firm’s focus on rivers and harbors. NRT has been involved in several sediment management projects, including a PCB-contaminated sediment remediation design and construction project at the site of this Earth Day cleanup event.
