Water Watchdog Report

What: Muddy Water
Where: Bennington Tributary of Sligo Creek, Silver Spring
When: 2015-05-27
Reported By: Anne Vorce
Additional Details:

WSSC water main replacement work is silting our creek again; foam/suds/bubbles from WSSC work as well, although I am not sure I understand exactly why. Heavy equipment and vehicles parked on riparian buffer including area right next to new DOT trees. This is essential work and complex, but why can’t our creek be better protected? Sediment kills aquatic life. Raised concerns May 26 to WSSC; May 27 to DEP through [email protected], the Water WatchDog email.
