These photos were taken Aug 28, 2015. This is the trashy condition of Maple Street Canal in Mobile Alabama after filing complaints about the storm water trash in this quarter mile long waterway in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015. Complaints went to the City and State and media and legislators and all the Environmental Enforcement agencies. Obviously no one gives a damn what is floating in Mobile waterways, even after YEARS of complaints. Got cancer yet?

The City of Mobile's Trashy Shoreline at its Arlington Park (aka Mobile Bay Shoreline) remains an eyesore to residents and visitors because the City of Mobile ignores most storm water litter, even after years of complaints.
Storm Water Litter is not just a City of Mobile community problem as storm water trash is abundant throughout the entire Mobile County.
The accumulation of storm water trash along most Mobile waterways is merely a symptom of Alabama having no recycling expectations or requirements along with having ZERO people employed to remove litter once it reaches the state of Alabama's navigable waterways. If there is anyone working full time removing trash from Mobile area waterways I have never seen them or seen any improvement in the trashy shorelines.
The end result? Alabama which once advertised itself "Alabama the Beautiful" is no longer beautiful - it is trashy. To keep up with reality Alabama now advertises itself "Sweet Home Alabama." The new name was probably chosen in reference to all the empty sugary drink bottles acumulating along and polluting most of its waterways. Sweet eh?

If you think Dog River and Three Mile Creek are polluted with trash, try kayaking in Bayou La Batre also known as Bayou La Trash. Beware of eating any seafood processed in the polluted community of Bayou La Batre which calls itself the "Seafood Capital of Alabama."

The shoreline trash in Three Mile Creek is worse than it looks if seen from a passing motorboat. Note the red highlight. The second photo is the view behind the highlighted shoreline weeds.
