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
- 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.
