There was a problem reporting this.
And old rubber tires , broken glass, rusty metal objects , I saw a plastic gas tank from a car the other day - my 5 yr old grandson said he smelled gas! My 3 1/2 yr old grand son picked up a bottom from a broken beer bottle and said “ look Pap paw!”. We were flipping rocks in the current , catching crawdads with a net! ( To take back to his city raised Momma- bless her heart, sweetest person on earth and I’m not joking!). The creek is full of living aquatic creatures ! Very exciting for young eyes ( and old too!).
Wow dirty diapers are unsightly, they don’t really do much for water quality degradation. Primary pollutants in Elkhorn creek our settlement and nitrates from fertilizer and animal waste.
And Urban sprawl with endless runoff from roofs from factories, malls, stores, subdivisions , parking lots, highways, factories , chem lawn , mountains of salt ( on roads in winter)
Mankind ,our ancestors killed the creek in the 1930’s and forward for decades, now it’s alive!
