A stream team cleanup brought divers to Bennett Spring State Park over the weekend.
Diving groups from Columbia, Jefferson City and Springfield partnered with Missouri Clean Stream for the event Friday through Sunday during which divers walked and dived into the spring to pick up trash and debris.
James Presley, an instructor with Diventures of Springfield, one of the organizations involved, said that 22 divers were involved, helping clean trash “fishing line, lures and any mad-made debris out of the spring.”
