Here a shoe. There a tire. Everywhere a bit of litter. This isn’t an updated version of a children’s nursery rhyme. Nor is this an inventory of a local city trash dump. This, unfortunately, is the reality of some of our most precious waterways. Alongside where families fish or swim, a few feet away, items meant for a recycling or garbage bin may be seen floating by.
