The beach had become an eyesore.

However, now the garbage is back. Less than 3 days later, Tuesday, another view of the beach shows another accumulation of trash.

The Franklin County Sheriff's office issued this statement:

 "Here is a little update for the Carbody Beach area. We had some volunteers clean up the vast majority of the trash here on Friday, and this is what it looks like 3 days later. This is absolutely unacceptable! We are doing our best to patrol this area, and if you are caught littering you will be cited!"

Carbody is located on the Pasco side, just north of PNNL on the Benton County side of the river.

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
