On July 5, 2001, approximately 50,000 gallons of partially treated wastewater was accidentally discharged from the Mountain View wastewater-treatment plant in Howell County, Missouri, into nearby Jam Up Creek. The creek is a tributary of the Jacks Fork, a recreational stream administered by the National Park Service (NPS) as part of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways in southeastern Missouri.
