Dirty Drains

Dirty drain water from rice fields and wildlife refuges regularly obliterates the water clarity in Butte Creek. This type of pollution can have serious effects on both juvenile and adult spring run salmon and steelhead which are migrating through here in March. The East side drain is much more obvious but the video from the Aguas Frias Bridge shows how clean the water is at that point. These drains are about five miles downstream. March 11, 2007
