The article focuses on the efforts of the government in Columbia, Missouri to hold an annual "Clean Sweep" to Hinkson Creek to show stakeholders on the city's mitigation ordinance. It mentions that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calls for the municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) to reduce Hinkson Creek's runoff by 40 percent. According to the city's community director, Timothy Teddy, EPA is basing impairment on the fact that warm water aquatic life is not up to par.
