Hattiesburg is cleaning up Gordon Creek

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The city of Hattiesburg is attempting to kill two birds with one stone this weekend.

On Saturday, nearly 200 people will be cleaning up a three mile stretch of Gordon's Creek from Hardy Street to the Leaf River.

This clean up project will allow the city to pay 80 percent of $32,000 that it was fined by the Department of Environmental Quality for exceeding its limitations at the lagoon.
