The article discusses the issues concerning the Muddy Creek, which is a narrow stream trickling across the sagebrush steppe of southern Wyoming. It states that researchers are studying the watershed in the area, wherein they attempted to determine how much of the element happens naturally and how much is released through human activity. Moreover, Joan Holloway, physical scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey, and her researcher team have tested for selenium in water, rock, and soil.
