Front-page story in Saturday, January 28, 2012, Northwest Arkansas Times by Joel Walsh with photos by Andy Shupe documents misbehavior and lack of environmental awareness of the powers-that-be at the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department. For more photos of that site and many similar AHTD worksites, see Flickr AHTD set of photos: 

All the excuses in the newsstory given by city and state officials mean nothing. There is NO excuse for allowing significant siltation of any stream!
