    Well now. Been a couple of weeks. Watched a bunch of videos, CHECK. Read the manuals, CHECK. Kept it on beginner mode for a while. CHECK. Lets take this baby out! My first big trip was to an open area south of the city where nobody ever ever ever goes...and what did I find? This is what happens when idiots decide to build a sewage treatment plant near a river. I present here for the world to learn from the mistakes of others….the Montesano Wa. Sewage Treatment plant. Soon to be part of the Wynoochee River here in the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. Apparently no one thought to ask the question “do rivers change course over time?”

    And to those towns river1.jpg downstream…..my apologies. My deepest and sincere apologies. DJI Phantom 4 April 2016

    It's actually quite common for sewage treatment plants to be situated by rivers. My town's is. That's where it goes after it's "Purified."

    I think your preposition is off. It isn't near the river....it is now in the river.
