     By selecting each of the photos, you will be able to follow the Kolb Discharge from it's collection point to its eventual treatment area approximately 500 feet downstream. The final two photos depict Blacklegs Creek in a natural condition just upstream of the discharge, and also its unnatural state where the discharge enters the stream. It is easy to understand why this project is so important to our stream clean-up efforts.
