My colleague and I visited Widows Creek the day the dam ruptured and the day after. We took several water samples from points upstream and downstream of the dam, as well as photographs of the creek and the surrounding area. We work with the non-profit United Mountain Defense.
Our reports as well as those from volunteers in Kingston, TN may be found at dirtycoaltva.blogspot.com and our photographs from Widows Creek are here: http://s423.photobucket.com/albums/pp311/laserjuice
