This picture, taken by Andy Dees on April 16, 1996 after a heavy rainfall, shows the confluence of  Dog River with Moore Creek, Halls Mill Creek, and Rabbit Creek. Dog River, in upper center of photo, is relatively clean because it drains the older developed part of Mobile east of Interstate 65. It picks up a sediment load from the Moore Creek/ Montlimar Canal system in the upper left of the picture, then an even greater load from Halls Mill Creek in the lower left. Rabbit Creek, not quite as dirty as Halls Mill, enters Dog River in the lower center of the picture.
