At the corner of Alamo and Commerce streets, a dumpster is packed with folding chairs, fiesta beads, a stroller, Christmas lights, a baby doll and a toy gorilla. All are covered in dried mud and silt, and all were removed from the San Antonio River downtown this week.
The San Antonio Public Works Department on Monday began draining parts of the river that flow through downtown for cleaning and maintenance, digging deep to find trash that has accumulated below the surface since the last time the river was drained two years ago. The project — which spans the downtown river loop, the extension and a segment of the main channel — will continue until this weekend, when public works will refill the river.
