most of u wont even read this.. but alot of creeks and streams are polluted.. and no one seems to care. and in my dads time they cleaned out the springs and branches. no one does this anymore. have u walked the creeks lately? trash is in them.. and u dont see the little minnows like u use to see.. it is a shame. think before u litter or put chemicals in our waters.. and if u own land that has springs or small branches on them clean them out so they flow right again..one step everyone can take.. thanks..

I havn't been the the creeks in a while but I use to go every weekend and I would always try to pick up trash and clean the area. anymore it's dangerous. I found used needles and condoms last time and I havn't been back. I don't mind picking up random trash but there is a limit.

and that is such a shame.. little kids play or should play in such places. we have found big trash bags full of needles at flippers.. a lake in gallatin off of 109.. they were laying on the bank all over the place.. these were dumped by someone in medical field.. we called the sheriff dept out.. nothing was ever reported about it or said in papers.. i will still walk the creeks.. i havent seen this in our area but i will take precautions with me now and pick this up.. i know it wont solve the worlds problems but it wouldnt hurt to do so.. thanks saint..

dont know if they ever did anything about it.. i think they picked up what they could find and im talking thousands.. and many black bags full.. we dont eat the fish from there anymore..nor would i get in that water. we couldnt understand why anyone at flippers didnt report it.. and this has been several years back.. at least 10. and it is such a shame that people dont respect these waters..and like u said bio hazard. i watched the gallatin papers for awhile but nothing ever said..
