Viola
Obsidian Creek begins west of Nymph Lake and flows north to the Gardner River. A few miles from its source, things go downhill for this little stream.

Maya
Well, most creeks do flow downhill, you know.

Viola
This is not a laughing matter! I’ve run across scientific data proving the water in parts of this stream is degraded—or if that’s too fancy a word for you, Ms. Crowbes, polluted. There must be a source of industrial waste hidden from the public! Such environmental abuse might have remained a deep, dark secret, if it weren’t for the stoneflies!

Beadle
My dear Ms. DeRama—

Viola
Don’t you “my dear Ms. DeRama” me! Oh, look at your blank faces! Surely, you, Dr. Beadle, can explain the importance of a stonefly as it relates to water pollution.
