The Monongahela River is a 130 mile long River that flows from north-central West Virginia to Point State Park in Pittsburgh to form the headwaters of the Ohio River with the Allegheny River. The Monongahela River was most recently Tireless Project's river-of-focus in spring of 2023. Our river cleanup crew spent three weeks living in a houseboat on the Monongahela River traveling from Donora, at the edge of Allegheny County, back to Point State Park in Pittsburgh. Our team worked with small groups of volunteers on our boats and removed debris from the riverbanks. During the cleanup series our team and volunteers removed 19,438 pounds of trash and 281 tires!
