Actually, runs through Minden, WV after Oak Hill which was a super-fund sight! It has some good
drops, or did before the flood. Might be worth asking the folks at Ace Whitewater about the current
conditions when you get a huge rain. BJ and I ran it in like 97?

As to the pollution level of this creek:
from what I've been told by senior guides in the area, many houses on this creek straight-pipe.
That is to say fresh from the toilet to this creek. Supposedly one of the higher fecal counts in
WV. Might want to look for another creek!
