One thought on “Health Officials: Zika Threat Looms Large After Texas Storms

  1. I ride the Salado Creek Greenway on a regular basis for recreation and exercise. I’ve noticed that there is water constantly stagnating under the I-10 overpass where the bike trail runs under. Sometimes it’s flowing slowly, but most of the time it’s just ponding under the bridge. Lots of flies and mosquitos congregate in this murky mess. Bikers have to ride through the messy water if they want to complete a full 16 mile bike ride. I’ve notified the Health Department a couple of times of the situation, but have never gotten a response. This stagnant water is quite close to a neighborhood where people could be bitten by infected mosquitos.
