Envrionmental group says Big Darby endangered

A national environmental group has placed central Ohio's Big Darby Creek 9th on its list of the country's most endangered rivers. Washington D.C.-based American Rivers says suburban sprawl threatens the Big Darby.

The Ohio Envrionmental Council's Keith Dimoff calls for a strict building moratorium in all of the counties in the Big Darby watershed.

However, the head of the Central Ohio Building Industry Association, Jim Hilz says development and watershed protection can co-exist.
