After we found the source on Thursday 5/27/04, the contractor was directed to mitigate the problem. On Friday 5/28/04 the installed a temporary detention facility to filter the ground water and settle the sediments before it gets into the stormdrain system. Since Friday afternoon, it is my understanding that the temporary facility is working. Part of the permanent solution is the completion of the permanent detention facility for the site. We have asked the engineer-in-charge to propose a permanent solution. Our goal is to ensure that the water entering the creek complies with standards.

I will keep you informed of future developments and thank you for your input.
