Trash Reaccumulates in Happy Hollow Creek

Following the recent rains in the Omaha, a significant amount of trash was washed down Happy Hollow Creek, ending up at the deadfall barriers.

The following pictures taken on April 10th, indicate the trash that has reoccurred. The situation is once again similar to what it was when this issue was first reported.

There was no trash at either of these two locations following the cleanup last Friday and Sunday.

The last picture also shows how the "damming" effect of the debris in the creek results in a temporary inundation of an area of the creek bank. This is hazardous to the trees, and with the excessive water, may result in their mortality, and further degradation of the greenspace environs and its natural qualities.
