Washington County is making efforts to clean up dirtier portions of its largely lovely landscape.
This week, county crews will begin picking up hundreds of tires that have impacted Tommelson and Jackson creeks. The county's environmental director says it's an important, but not-too-pricey endeavor.
It's not the first time the county has looked at problems on its waters. You may remember News 3's investigative report last May about the thousands of tires on a private property along the Brazos River, with tires falling in.
That report spawned a state investigation. We spoke to that investigator within the past two days, and he said they are still looking into the issue with help from the county.
