We clean up Lake Dominieckie 2016 – report and photo gallery

The 8th edition of CJD in Boszków (and not only) surprised us in two ways. Positively and unfortunately also not positively, because there is still a whole mountain of rubbish.

Having learnt from experience, the organisers prepared themselves earlier than the official start time of the campaign to clean the lake and its surroundings. And good luck, because the first volunteers signed up after 9 o’clock. At that time the place-base was bustling with life. Guides, gloves, bags, bright green t-shirts, off-road vehicles, divers setting up the equipment and Jarek at the grill and soup with his helpers. Field groups were leaving very efficiently to individual sectors. At that time, 2 compressors from CN Dekompresja from Gniezno and CN Octopus from Leszno were already working. Tomek Wlodarczak from CN Tiger, as a new coordinator of the underwater part of the clean-up, distributed the divers around the whole area of the Dominickie Lake. In total about 500 people signed up for the land part and 66 divers for the underwater action.

Visibility underwater was up to 3 metres at 17 C. Unfortunately the rubbish did not let us down. We collected plastic, cans and bottles, cutlery, stuff, boards with nails, a rudder fin, glasses, lighters, jars, tyres and much more.

if(typeof ugCheckForErrors == “undefined”){
document.getElementById(“unitegallery_25_1”).innerHTML = “Unite Gallery Error – gallery js and css files not included in the footer. Please make sure that wp_footer() function is added to your theme.“;}
else{ ugCheckForErrors(“unitegallery_25_1”, “jquery”);}
};

Divers came from all over the world. There were both associated and non-associated volunteers, from Kościan (CN Tryton), from Głogów, from Śrem, from CN Płetwal from Poznań, from Dekompresja and Octopus, from Wschowa, from Lubań Śląski, from Kołobrzeg. The youngest prospector of infamous artefacts of the 21st century was only 9 years old, and his older colleague, who dived in my team under the supervision of Tomek, was 11.

Around 2pm everyone started to return from cleaning up and the rubbish was filling up the container. The sour soup in the big pot was ready and inviting with the smell of garlic and white sausage. The barbecue was also waiting for its supporters. There was a long queue, but thanks to the efficient staff, it moved forward surprisingly quickly.

The feast for deserving volunteers began. A joint photo was taken around 4:30 p.m., and then it was just music, competitions and spending time together. As usual, the walruses had a bath, the kids could go boating, and Dominik Zając from Błotnica kept watch over a container of rubbish which had grown to several cubic metres.

Unfortunately, we still do not know how or want to take care of nature. We throw away literally everything, although walking around the lake you can see that there are more and more rubbish bins and they are quite close to each other along the entire shoreline. And what is thrown into the water? Well, nobody sees it… Unless they step on a 4 cm long nail sticking out of a board…

It is a pity that there is still something to collect, and the seemingly clean parts of the bottom on one side more than repay with a lot of rubbish on the other side.

You can find more and in more detail in the report by Mateusz Lubieniec on the e-boszkowo portal. All the companies, organisations, etc. that supported the action this year are listed here. For my part, on behalf of the organisers, I already invite you to the CJD in 2017

During the 2016 CJD campaign, 17 m3 of rubbish was collected, which weighed 1,600 kg
