I am guessing this is the sediment from the bottom of the res, but its ridiculous. Sediment like that will kill all of the fish in the river and potentially wreck the ecosystem for the river below the north fork for a long time if it continues. Also I have to work in Filter Plant and I'd rather not take people kayaking through mud. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this, and if this is a mistake or if it was planned.

I drained my seamen resorvoir this morning but mine was milky white not chocolate brown-what gives?
