Cade Kistler is currently investigating this issue.
We have submitted to ADEM and will be conducting an investigation of the Muddy Creek watershed to attempt to identify potential sources. A preliminary review points to the possibility of agriculture or unpaved roads being potential sources.

Cade Kistler has closed this issue.
Turbidity had decreased substantially but was still elevated. No clear evidence of any major source was identified. As can best be determined right now it appears the issue resulted from erosion occurring on agricultural fields, timber operations and dirt roads. We will continue to monitor the watershed during rain events to see if any other sources are identified. We will also investigate available programs aimed at reducing this type of non-point source pollution. A picture of the contributing watershed is attached.
