Yes, before ORSANCO got teeth it was not uncommon to see large rafts of algae floating down the river. Beargrass Creek, here in Louisville, flowed past several meat packing houses which cast the entrails into the stream. The Bourbon Stockyard also flushed their pens directly into it. That creek had a certain air. Ah, those good old days before government intervention.
