    Meredith Diskin is currently investigating this issue.

    Mobile Baykeeper investigated this issue on 8/26/19. Turbidity samples were collected north of Dauphin Ave and just north of where Montlimar Creek runs into the creek exiting the golf course. The sample showed a turbidity level of 152NTU. Some very muddy runoff was observed coming from the construction of the Crowne Health Care site and running into Dauphin Ave just in front of Metzger's. There was a very large amount of red clay on the sidewalk and in the street in front of Metzger's. This issue will be reported to the City of Mobile and ADEM for follow-up and we will continue monitoring before, during and after heavy rain.
