CINCINNATI (AP) - A water pollution control agency is soliciting volunteers to participate in its annual cleanup day for riverbanks along the Ohio River and its tributaries.

The Cincinnati-based Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission says its 25th River Sweep has been scheduled for June 21. Thousands of volunteers in six states along the river help comb for trash and debris over 3,000 miles of shorelines from western Pennsylvania to southern Illinois during the annual event.

The interstate commission says potential volunteers can visit its website for more information, and the cleanup sites will be listed in early spring.
