More information on Richland Creek dead fish

From the Richland Creek Watershed Alliance news page:
From a second stakeholder living on Richland Creek "I've noticed a lot of dead fish and dead crawdads in the creek in the past couple of days"--

From a stakeholder near Charlotte Park (downstream from the greenway) said, "For your information, we have noticed what appeared from a distance to be an oil film on top of the water between Urbandale Bridge and I-40 Bridge about two weeks or more ago."

From a professor and creek enthusiast we got the downstream photo 1 and a comment~ "The duck week is indicative of nutrients loading the stream. That could be leaky sewers, lawn fertilizers sediments or some other source."
Monette Rebecca has more details at the RCWA site.
