You could see tires, a book case or anything else in there. One day I saw a kayak floating downstream with no paddler. I don't know who takes the trouble to throw this jetsam in the river. That is bad enough. The neglect of natural debris has not been cleaned up in a decade. Fallen trees make natural dams all the way down. Maybe the county decided that au naturel was the preferred ecological avenue.

The most toxic river was Cuyahoga in Cleveland 1969. It actually caught on fire. Took few days to extinguish!!
