Little Salt Creek

LOOKING Closer

Salt Creek and its tributaries drain roughly 1,600 square miles of land area, including Lincoln, Nebraska. This camera looks at Little Salt Creek, which drains Shoemaker Marsh and Arbor Lake, sending water to Salt Creek proper and eventually to the Platte River. Salt seepages and springs are apparent in the frame. This camera was retired after it was lost to floodwaters several years ago.
