I live 6 miles from Otter Creek.


Meanwhile, we are nearing 2 inches of rainfall in the last 24 hours. (Washing evidence downstream)...

Think I'll stop and take a look on my way to Viroqua today


Looks like the total kill is up to 1300 now --

Not to wax political, but with the current administration and legislature's political leanings, I don't see any additional effort to prevent this kind of thing. When that spill on Castle Rock Creek occurred, I don't recall any real punishment of the farm that caused it, nor any realistic moves to prevent it happening in the future.

One of the streams I take my son to. Nice landowners and easy access. CAFO's should be banned.
I live in a van down by the river.
