Skunk River, 12/1/2001

(point your mouse to each photo for info)

Loads of broken concrete and dirt pushed into river at 4380 Grand 4380 Grand
4380 Grand - Are permits required? And can dirt be dumped into the river? Creek near Inis Grove Park. Another outlet downstream, with much greater erosion, was not visible from the river.
Bridge at Carr Pool Large creek outflow in area of old sanitary landfill (this is likely the waterway which crosses Dayton just south of 13th)
UP bridge, City stockpile (asphalt millings?) in background - the area between the UP RR bridge and Lincoln Way is the most industrialized section. Not pretty. Outlet with rusty-colored effluent/orange slime near stockpile in previous photo. This area (Carnegie Ave) was once the town dump.
Pond near Sondrol Drive - note deep blue-green color (lime from concrete?) concrete - Fortified dike between pond and river
Outlet at 1109 East Lincoln Way - alot of trash and debris along bank just upstream Typical cut bank between Lincoln Way and S. 16th, both sides of river. Crops planted to the river's edge
Gravel bars below L. Way are littered with small pieces of broken concrete, glass, etc; Good stands of willow
