RCWA reports on possible creek pollution source

Got another contact from a stakeholder that there was a dirty gray and cloudy plume entering Richland Creek from the storm water tributary that cuts across the McCabe golf course. Stakeholder said Parks was informed and that they were very concerned and pro-active. They followed the inflow to a storm drain in Sylvan Park and had collected water samples. RCWA informed Metro Water Services about the issue and they said they would investigate as well.

Observations like this are very helpful in protecting our water resources and protecting the life connected to it, as well as educating all of us to what pollutes and how it gets polluted. If you observe something that seems to be an impact to our creeks or rivers contact Metro Water Services immediately at (615) 313-7873 week days and (615) 862-4600 on weekends. You can also contact TDEC water pollution control if you feel it warrants such a report. Feel free to contact RCWA and let them know or ask questions at rcwa@comcast.net. We are all volunteers and may not receive the complaint in time so contact the authorities immediately and tell us you did.
WSMV-TV covered this development at the creek as well.
