RICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ Virginia’s environmental agency is investigating the cause of cloudy water in Bryan Park in North Richmond.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/1FCLZJC ) the state Department of Environmental Quality sent an inspector to the park Wednesday after the newspaper relayed to the agency a report of “milky” water in a stream in the park.
Department spokesman Bill Hayden says the inspector found “some cloudiness” in the stream, Jordan’s Branch.
Hayden says the inspector did not see any dead fish or other serious problems.
Hayden says the inspector will check to see if he can find a source of pollution upstream. The department could have results Thursday or Friday.
Jordan’s Branch winds through a wooded section of the park and into Young’s Pond.
