Virginia Waterfront Law Firm Cleans Pinetree Branch, Lynnhaven River

February 9, 2019 | In The Community

Our Waterfront Property Law team, joined up with a dozen of our friends at Lynnhaven River Now, plus about ten of our Pender & Coward colleagues, to spend a chilly (40 degree) Saturday morning removing hundreds of pounds of trash from the marsh and the waters of the Pinetree Branch of the Lynnhaven River (in Virginia Beach, Virginia). Together, our army of about 30 volunteers spread out to gather up and remove bottles, cans, balls, shoes, cups, all manner of styrofoam and plastic, a tire, a temporary license plate and an endless variety of other trash that people had dumped in this waterway.

Two of our Waterfront Property Law attorneys lost their balance in the mud. Bryan Peeples popped right up with some mud on his pants. When Jim Lang went down, the mud suction pulled his foot and leg out of his hip wader. Jim ditched the muddy sock, pulled his hip wader out of the mud and kept right on going.
