On Friday, Ed Hatfield photographed the Muddy River under the Bowker Overpass at Charlesgate:
That basketball has been there for at least 5 years, the soccer ball about eight and I think the baseball was a Babe Ruth homerun knocked out of Fenway Park. This is part of the reason the Charles River is getting cleaner. I think every thing that ends up in the water from JP down stream ends up here and it is blocked so it doesn't go into the Charles River basin.
Yesterday, for the second time in three months, a body was recovered from the Muddy River, just upstream from this location.
