Student research paper


Rock Creek is a tributary to the Snake River. It stretches across Twin Falls county as well as Cassia County and is around forty-four miles long. It is also home to many multiple different species of wildlife, mostly fish. With all of these fish comes the amazing sport of fishing which is what my friends, family, and self do consistently. Unfortunately, Rock Creek like other public bodies of water has become polluted over the years mainly with E. Coli. In this paper, one will be able to look over my perspective on the issue as well as an interview with a former official directly involved with fishing on the river and how he had a similar situation lastly with the help of peer-reviewed articles one will be able to understand why the Rock Creek got polluted and what some recommendations are. It will also reflect some possible solutions such as filters and soil conservation. The main reason for this research is to find out why nothing has been put into place to help the Rock Creek.
