As we look harder at the damage that has been done to water flowing over Pierce county, going back to old plat maps, you see some mysteries about where empty channels run.
The thing to notice is the path that Clover Creek takes through Parkland and into and out of Steilacoom Lake.
Enjoy exploring. You will learn why there are dry channels around Western State Hospital and through the middle of Lakewood.
