Water looks clear ... but not for long
People often ask me, "So, how is the water?" in the rivers and lakes of the Cannon River watershed.
If I was to answer that question today, I'd say it's great.
Last year's drought meant very little overland runoff carrying pollution to the water and with winter most of the moisture is locked up in snow and ice. If you've braved the cold and gone walking by the water lately, you'll have seen how clear it is.
