Volunteers work together to haul an old tank from the Fordson Island Channel of the Rouge River July 8. More than a dozen people worked together to remove debris from the island and the shallow water around it after heavy equipment operators had cleared abandoned boats and docks from the water earlier this year. After decades of neglect Fordson Island and the Rouge River channel that separates it from Detroit (the island is part of Dearborn) are finally getting some respect.

Volunteer Tom Welley carries timber from the remains of an abandoned boat on Fordson Island July 8.
