Is there any specific reason as to why Buckroe's water usually has that greenish look to it? I know it's nothing really dirty or nobody would go in it but i'm curious about it

It's not just Buckroe, all of the water around here is brown and filthy looking.

That's something I've wondered about, too. I think a number of factors come into play -- nutrients in the water, pollution/run-off in the water, weather (example: storms will churn the water and bring sediment up, salinity. I'm sure there are other factors but those are a few that I know of.
