Pond + raccoon = murky water?

socksSeptember 9, 2010

Our pond has been bad this summer, brown murky water. Would it be caused by that raccoon I saw a few nights ago around the pond? We don't see the lilies disturbed or missing fish.

Excuse me if this has been asked a million times before. I searched and came up with hundreds of posts--too much to plow through.

Socks, there are so many variables it would be impossible to state with any certainty that the cause of the murky water is raccoons...at least with the info you have given.

Please, give us a bit more info. I had to stop putting water lilies in the pond because the Koi kept digging them up. The mud was suspended for weeks, it seemed. Did I have raccoon problems, you bet, but they were not the only culprits.
