This is a man-made water filter in Lee County. Water from Pop Ash Creek is pumped into a filter marsh structure which is surrounded by rocks providing aeration and it then percolates through the marsh plants taking out excess nutrients, metals and suspended solids. This marsh, which spans 307 acres, was dug with sloping sides and a deeper hole in the middle. Fish and frogs can gather in the deep waters during dry season and wading birds, alligators, otters, opossums, foxes, wolves, raccoons, deer and turtles can easily approach from all sides. As far as I am concerned, this is $1,561,846 of well spent money. Bravo Lee County! "Take only pictures and leave only footprints".
