The Living Lands & Waters river cleanup fleet had spent three weeks in Memphis during LL&W’s annual “Alternative Spring Break” program for college students. From Memphis, the fleet needed to get upriver to Cairo in early June, to begin a series of cleanups on the Ohio River, but the LL&W fleet was underpowered for the task. Fortunately, a Marquette Transportation line boat was able to give the cleanup fleet a ride alongside a tow of empties. The boat happened to be the mv. Chad Pregracke, which is named after LL&W’s founder.
