Cleaned Up?

It's barely a waterfall.

It’s barely a waterfall.

It’s barely a waterfall, the creek – barely a creek. The place is at the upper end of the town where everybody goes, but nobody sees. Drainage from swamps and wetlands, hidden in plain sight the water flows, year after year, season after season, first out to the little lake and then to the big lake.

The little lake used to be one of the top ten most polluted lakes in the country, with a tannery and all the major chemical plants on its shores, but they say it’s since been cleaned up.
