Silted River…

This is one of the rivers here in the city where I live.  
Every time I go to the city, I saw this river.  And every time I saw this river I see the changes.  Water is not that clear anymore and not looking fresh like before.  Gone are the days when this river looks very lively.  Now it becomes a silted river because of the soil that comes from the upper part of the city.  Every time there is heavy rain,  soil eroded going down to this river.  This is because no more trees that can hold the soil from being eroded.  Logging of trees is the main reason why this river is no longer healthy.Back then, I saw people and families are having fun swimming in this river.  But not they cannot do it anymore because of the soil.  The river that used to be the lively river where people go to swim is now a silted river that no one dares to come to swim anymore.  If only those who are logging trees from upper part of the city saw the look of this river now, they will realized what damaged they cause.  I just wish that this river will be back to normal.  It is never too late to bring back the lively look of this river, let us plant trees so that this river will no longer be a silted river.
