Hi Nancy - here's the story, at least as far as I know it.  We have had a PWA guy - William Madison, out and about trying to find the source of the muddy water since DeSilva started grading about 6 weeks ago.  We've tested manholes, pipe segments, etc - all to no avail.  About 24 hours ago - the source was identified - it appears to be a subdrainage system on the LQ site and PWA has required DeSilva to install a sediment basin in that location.  I will forward you more information as I receive it.  Have a great weekend and I will get back to you next week with further developments.  Regards, CC

Hi Claudia,

Here are some pictures and history regarding Chimes Creek.  Something ain't right here in river city.

Can you get some feedback on this or is this going to be a cover up by DeSilva hoping to get the work done before a major legal issue ensues?

Does the City have the appropriate personnel to oversee this?
