Watching creek salt levels

This morning's Ithaca Journal mentions the Fall Creek and Six Mile Creek watershed monitoring projects (a training session for which I visited last year) in an article about concerns over salt levels in freshwater streams. Road salt is the primary culprit nationally, though levels in Tompkins County are still low, with a peak in early spring.

On the opinion page, Greg Kimbell of Dryden writes to warn America of the dangers of following President Bush's advice to "stay the course". There's also an editorial on state debt levels well-worth reading, especially for its proposals on how to end New York's backdoor debt.
