A creek isn’t clearing up after years of problems. The Calusa Waterkeeper says there’s a high level of contamination in Billy Creek. The place is known for being a health concern.
The view of the water may be great, but it’s what’s under Billy’s Creek that scares Neil Wilkinson, a retired instructor with FGCU’s Marine and Ecological Sciences Program who lives on Billy’s Creek.
“The bacterial levels are off the chart, it’s, you know, it’s not a happy thing to say you live on the most polluted creek in Southwest Florida,” said Wilkinson.
Wilkinson lives along the fecal contaminated waters.
