An Asheville non-profit discovered over the weekend that their aluminum pontoons were cut free and stolen over the weekend.
Asheville GreenWorks says they discovered the damage off of the Haw Creek Trash Trout.
They say all four lines were cut from the pontoon as it was stolen and the cage tossed back in the creek to be carried away by the flow of water.
Trash Trouts are stormwater litter traps that sit in urban creeks and streams keeping manmade trash from entering main waterways. The devices are built to withstand the rigors of flashy rain events, yet passive enough not to harm the local fauna.
