Title Manti Creek in Retrospect
Description A^t.ngiiy there is less good land available at Manti now than at the turn of the century. The swamp has been creeping outward. Acreage on both sides of the railway track, a short distance north of Manti, has changed from first-class land to swamp. The reason for this change is not entirely clear, but it may "be due to increased subterranean flow to the swamp due to changed management of the watershed. And what will the future of Manti Creek be? Much of the vegetation on the watershed is of poor quality. Future population pressure may make it econcmicaXly feasible to eradicate trash vegetation that consumes precious water and to substitute profitable species. Then, too, geneticists may be able to splice the genee of highly nutritious plants upon those of swamp grasses. Experience tells us one things whether the creek behaves like a beneficent, grand old dame or a holy terror will depend on how wisely the watershed ia managed. -53-
