A large downed tree and an abandoned boat have been removed from the Passaic River in Wayne, thanks to a complaint about it from a nearby resident, NorthJersey.com reported.
The Passaic County Sewerage Commission removed an 18-foot fiberglass boat, its dock, and a large downed tree from two separate locations along the river, the report said. The debris in the river was a hazard for boaters and others who frequent the river, the report said.
According to the report, the complaint about the debris was actually made by a resident of Little Falls, and it was found near the border.
"PVSC is pleased to help Wayne and our local residents rid themselves of eyesores and hazards. We are mindful of the pollution and flooding issues associated with this large debris, as well as the navigational and safety hazards they pose," PVSC Executive Director Michael DiFrancisci told NorthJersey.com.
