Cry Me a River

This morning Chris Burke of the Friends of the North Fork Shenandoah River gave a presentation here in Basye. He discussed the sources of pollution of the river, and even told us that our local creeks (Stony Creek and Mill Creek) are polluted. Both forks of the Shenandoah have had serious pollution problems, partly due to agricultural run-off, sewage, and vehicle pollution.

The talk was part of a series that Frank organized for the local library.
