SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKRC) - There is a new way to clean a popular local lake, and it has a pretty catchy name.
Crews from Great Parks of Hamilton County and the Mill Creek Alliance installed the Litter Gitter on Winton Woods Lake. It will grab trash from the west fork of the Mill Creek before it gets into the lake.
The system includes a bright orange boom between the banks to funnel garbage into a floating metal case that can be emptied.
Waste from the Mill Creek poses a danger to habitats in the lake.
