Clean Water versus Endangered Species
The California drought has created many oddities over the last few years but none as bizarre as a scene that unfolds regularly on a tributary of the Santa Ana River.

The stream's modest flow, provided almost entirely by a San Bernardino water treatment plant, suddenly stops, quickly stranding thousands of threatened Santa Ana sucker fish.

Volunteers and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service employees dash into the vanishing puddles to net as many of the 4- to 6-inch fish as they can, placing them in buckets of water.

After a few hours, water starts flowing again and workers return the fish to the stream.

Aquatic Plants an Important Part of any Healthy Freshwater Ecosystem - More than 4,200 types of wild plant species grow in Florida including more than 1,400 invasive species, providing greater plant diversity than nearly any other state. Hundreds of these plant species blossom in Florida lakes and streams and along freshwater shorelines. Besides providing prime habitat, these plants also help keep local waters clean.
