Are cattle the culprits of the county’s water woes?

By The Staff

OWEN COUNTY – More than half the streams and rivers here pose high risks for swimming and fish consumption, and even more remained “threatened,” according to federal water quality standards. Buck Creek and Moesby Branch Creek in the northern region are the most degraded, environmental reports show. Those creeks are not suitable for humans or wildlife. Leading water pollutants for those sites include siltation and metals, which likely flow downstream from more urban areas. But the most surprising culprit for the county’s water supplies? Cows.
