Tuesday morning and shows the water clearing. Certainly not the
same as prior to the spill but in much better condition compared to
Friday in terms of overall water quality.

Much Needed Rains Help Spill Cleanup
The coal slurry spill cleanup effort continues along a portion of Captina Creek in Wayne and Washington townships. Thankfully the spill area has received about an inch of rain over the past two days aiding the cleanup by diluting the leftover solutes suspended in the creek.
