Thank you for your e-mail regarding the foamy water you found in Chimes Creek and your concern of Saturday 12, 2004 work. At the meeting of the City staff and Regional Water Quality Control Board and the Contractor on June 8, 2004, the contractor was directed to test the water leaving the site to ensure that there were no pollutants entering into the City's storm drain system. We are awaiting for the result of the test and will inform you upon receipt.

Also, the Saturday, June 12, 2004 work was authorized. The condition of approval requires work on weekends to occur only when authorized by Building Services and Planning Divisions of CEDA. Although Saturday work was authorized, the contractor is still subject to the project's conditions of approval. The work was monitored by City staff and the developer's engineer-in-charge.

I hope this clarifies your concern. We appreciate your bringing this to our
