Today, the Chatham Barrel Yard October 2019 SemiAnnualDataSbmtl was posted showing the results of the October, 2019 monitoring event.
Escondido Neighbors United will be reviewing the document and expects to have detailed comments, however a quick review shows that contamination is still in Felicita Creek in areas where people use the creek and several monitoring stations have higher contamination results than in previous sampling events. At least one well that is supposed to be sampled has not been.
ENU will also be asking questions about what the most recent massive erosion event caused by failure of the Oak Creek developers to control storm water may have on movement of contamination. This failure has already led to a Stop Work order and a Notice of Violation from the city.
We will share further information as we review the document.

Uncontrolled sprawl is one of the the most serious problems in our region. From increawsing carbon emissions, reducing quality of life, undermining our transit planning, and fire. We have to stop relying on this antiquated type of development. Instead, we need to provide more housing in our urban core areas that is available to more economic levels. Vote Yes and Measure A and NO on Measure B in the March 3rd election.
This concert is a fun way to help stop sprawl.
Don’t Miss It!!!! We can save our region!
