SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

Today Santa Barbara Harbor Waterfront staff as well as volunteers rolled up their sleeves to cleanup the harbor. Organizers say the seventh annual Operation Clean Sweep brought out a record number of volunteers. 

Harbor Operations says the cleanup effort continues--next week  a contractor is set to remove a sunken aqua culture facility.

All told it's estimated Operation Clean Sweep 2013 will net a little more than a ton of debris.
