I was at Slab Creek a few weeks ago and the water was quite low. I went to the boat put in along the dirt road and stopped at the water’s edge. From there you could see into the water easily.
Unfortunately what I saw was the remains of a car, a 55-gallon drum and what looks like a washing machine.
First of all, the folks who did this should be drawn and quartered. I contacted SMUD, El Dorado County Water Agency and the El Dorado County Board of supervisors. As far as I know, nothing has been done about it.
Now I know it may not be the top priority. But the water is up again now obscuring the items, and the opportunity to clear them easily is gone. Does anyone know who would be responsible?
