Brief description of the trash site

The riverbank along the access road to the Holyoke dam powerhouse has a variety of informal putin locations and places where people fish and dump trash. It is accessible from the shore, but some of the trash is in the river and requires working in the water. The location is a short walk from the parking lot at the American Legion Post on St Kolbe Avenue in Holyoke. This spot has been used by the Log Pond Cove water chestnut volunteers / staff to put in their canoes.
