|The Crystal Clear Waters Of Tandy Creek|
It is a miracle of the cleansing nature of Mother Nature that the waters of Tandy Creek are back running clear.
Today I parked on top of Mount Tandy and made my way down the north side of the mountain to the site of the recent massive raw sewage spill that ran in to Tandy Creek and then in to the Trinity River, eventually making it all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.
I can not help but wonder how many municipalities downstream from Fort Worth take their drinking water from the Trinity River?
I can also not help but wonder if the City of Fort Worth warned municipalities downstream that a massive raw sewage spill had contaminated the Trinity River?
Or is raw sewage spilling into creeks and rivers just the norm in this part of the planet and not worthy of concern? Or worthy of letting anyone know you've had a bad boo-boo?
|Tandy Highway Massive Raw Sewage Ruts|
As you can see, the most recent work on the pipelines has left the area even more rutted than it was a couple days ago.
It was a bit of a challenge to make my way to the crystal clear waters of Tandy Creek, avoiding stepping where raw sewage recently flowed.
But I made it.
Give it time and the scars of this most recent man-made environmental damage to the Tandy Hills will heal.
