Water Quality Study Looks at Urban Runoff in Arkansas

OCTOBER 2, 2006 - Posted at 7:38 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The state is working to determine how much pollutions is flowing into Fourche Creek from new subdivisions in the Little Rock area.  A state regulator says the creek makes up one of the largest urban wetlands in the country.

Fourche Creek accepts water from a developed area that encompasses much of the Little Rock metropolitan area.  The monitoring will reveal the acidity of the water and will indicate levels of a wide variety of metals and other compounds.

Fource Creek itself and its tributaries span 90 square miles, an area that takes in fast-growing west Little Rock and developing areas as far away as Alexander on the border of Pulaski and Saline counties.
