David Krier has written a fascinating essay about our water quality in our area.  David works to gather interesting facts, not just opinions. 

He touches on history of the Clean Water Act , history of land use in this area after European farmers arrived, and the resulting movement of soils from the ridges to the valleys, burying RR tracks , bridges, and farms below.

He describes  Aldo Leopold’s work in this time to save soils, and the history of management of our trout streams. And describes the volunteers  who monitor the quality of our surface stream water, what they measure, and ways today we are working to combat soil runoff- and lots more.
