Byrne Creek in SE Burnaby Runs Milky Blue

I noticed on a walk of Byrne Creek in SE Burnaby that it was running a milky blue color late this afternoon. I called it in to City of Burnaby environment staff, but havenít heard if they traced the source. Apparently another streamkeeper had reported similar colour in the creek earlier in the day, and thought it came from a construction site. Suspended clay silt?

Nothing but rain is supposed to go down street drains!
