ENU Opposes Sewer Project that will trench in areas of Chatham Plume- City Hearing WEDNESDAY AUGUST 19

Escondido Neighbors United filed a letter opposing the adoption of a mitigated declaration and of the sewer trenching project.  ENU Sewer MND Letter

The Final MND up for adoption is here MND SW Sewer Replacement project

In summary,  we believe this project is too risky and should not be undertaken.

·        
This
project is not necessary as current system handles the current level of sewage.  If and when improving the system is needed to maintain current loads, current
lift stations can be upgraded.
·        
The
project threatens to impact a highly serious contaminated waste site and potentially
discharge waste into Felicita Creek/Lake Hodges through the MS4.   
·        
The
plan for management of risks has not been disclosed.
·        
The
City cannot assure residents along the road that they will be protected.
·        
The
City cannot assure the workers in the trenches their health will not be put at
risk.

·        
This
project could provide a new conduit for the contamination from the Chatham
site.  If this occurs, the City may be
liable for the contamination of any new areas. 

We urge everyone concerned about this project to write the Council and please attend the August 19th City Council Hearing if you can to oppose this project.
