One of the biggest challenges to improving the water quality of the Portneuf River outside of Pocatello is to reduce the amount of sediment flowing in from Marsh Creek. This tributary provides water for agricultural land, but it dumps lots of mud into the Portneuf. What causes so much sediment to wash into Marsh Creek? Scientists from the MILES project join with area landowners to investigate.
