  Original Published: 9/25/2013The City of Mansfield's Stream Outreach program conducted it's second Operation S.O.S., Save Our Streams Tuesday afternoon. Volunteers took part in cleaning up the Touby Run Stream. Program coordinator Kim Hildreth said Operation S.O.S. is important to the community.  "Litter, debris and illegal dumping are ongoing problems. Litter and debris can stop water flow in our storm drains and cause flooding," Hildreth said. "This same litter and debris can enter into the storm drains thereby entering our streams and affecting water quality. This same accumulation of litter and debris reflects to visitors just how much pride we have in our community," Hildreth said. Area residents, groups and organizations such as the Mansfield Rotary Club, helped with the clean-up.
