Unbelievable! It is sad that this kind of stuff happens, and that is why Beaver Lake looks so bad during storm events. Great pictures! We all need to keep our eyes open for things like this, take pictures, then confront our local government representatives to do something about it! You know, I often notice ditches and streams during storm events, some of them are fairly clean, while others look like chocolate milk. We need to document what is causing the chocolate milk, and then act to clean up the source. It will take all of our efforts!

Well, Benton County has more places like this than Washington County. But, as a great Tulsa television fisherment used to say in the 1970s, every one counts one!
