Tully Valley Mudboils

What are Mudboils?
When we visited the mudboils they were not round with a lot of moister on the inside they looked more scattered and flat.
When we went to the Tully Valley Mudboils.
This is the picture Mrs. Verbeck took of the mudboils leaking into Onondaga Creek.
The Tully Valley Mudboils are important to the overall recovery of Onondaga Lake!!
Damage done to Onondaga Creek by the Mudboils.
Onondaga Creek has a murky muddy-brown appearance especially during high. Most of these materials come from the Tully Valley Mudboils. Much of the stream bed below from the mudboil area is covered with sediments released from the Mudboils. Onondaga Creek contributes more than 50% of the annual tributary sediment load to the lake due in large part to the mudboils.
