I once dove a private quarry in Iowa... about 2 feet of vis, found a christmas tree forrest on one end. They claim the thing used to be crystal clear when it was first mined out, but a lot of mud has washed into it over the past 5-10 years... doesn't take long to muck it all up.

Scubagal,

Where is Atlantic Quarry? I'm not familiar with this and thought I knew them all in the Midwest.

Correct, it's located in Atlantic, IA onsite at Schildberg construction. Our club obtains permission to dive there, as do some of the local dive shops.
