Typical BS going on: The temporary holding pond for Arbre Farms organic wastes was not authorized.
No authorization and then reporting what happened to only a few people.

Amen to that Redbrook as in several cases with agricultural "accidental" spills in the Tyler Creek watershed which is still in recovery from farm contamination over the years, the agricultural industry wins every time. I'm convinced the fine won't match the damage that has been done. So what happens to the contamination and what will become of it 10 years from now?

Here's a real eye opening book on what our Great Lakes has suffered since the advent of the overseas shipping industry has caused over the centuries.

From a posting by a DNR fisheries biologist on another forum. He said that he checked it out as soon as it was reported, but it was at least 36 hours after the event. He saw very few dead fish at various crossings, but land owners are reporting more kills along Freeman Creek. Apparently, it is too early to tell much, but it is "less than ideal"

Big South is also a major spawning trib for salmon and steelhead from the Pere Marquette. The impact on the salmon fry and the recently completed steelhead spawn eggs will probably be hard to determine.
