The water on the Red Cedar a few miles above Sand Creek is clear. At some point a feeder stream turns the Red Cedar murky. Possibly a point source of pollution. Keep in mind that the Red Cedar used to be clear all the way to the Chippewa. Instead of generalizing about acculturated farmer opinions, why not identify where the excess fertilizer and septic tank overflows enter into the river and work on removing those? Talk to the individuals, businesses, sewage treatment plants, and Tainter Lake home owners about their contribution to the problem.
