There are many things that indicate threats to streams, lakes and rivers.

  • Muddy water flowing from construction sites during a rain
  • Removal of vegetation from within the 25 state-mandated stream buffer
  • Dead fish in the water or fish gasping for air at the surface
  • Sewer spills (often has a milky appearance in a stream with a foul odor)
  • Illegal dumping of trash or other pollutants
  • Discolored water
  • Poorly planned development or land use
  • Flooding
  • Many others

Example “important-to-report” issues:

People were just littering entirely too much along the creek. There was a need. You can make this a better place by taking care of your environment.
