Crooked Creek is an urban stream that originates in southern Hamilton County, flows southerly through Pike & Washington Townships and discharges into the White River and drains approx. 20 square miles. Crooked Creek has been dredged and is degraded by urbanization. Water quality problems include heavy sediment loads from uncontrolled construction sites, septic effluents, the discharge of raw sewage from surcharging sewers during moderate rainfalls, and nonpoint source pollutants enter the creek in stormwater runoff. Flooding also is a problem in the watershed.
