Clean up Arkansas River

Good for the city of Wichita for planning a new campaign to clean up the Arkansas River. Though its water quality has improved in recent years, the river is still too polluted, particularly after heavy rains. The new campaign will focus on ways to reduce pollution runoff into the river, such as by using less lawn fertilizer and properly disposing of motor oil and other chemicals. The Ark River is a valuable asset and should be treated as such.
