Subject: Chimes Creek update

The Chimes Creek website ( www.chimescreek.com ) has been updated with
photos and correspondence with the City on what's happened over the past
several weeks as the winter storms get underway. Despite all the
reassurances by the experts, ("the project will make your creek much
better!") we've already seen a number of disgusting sewer overflows into the
Creek, not to mention flooding and loss of private property. We are also
still questioning the decision made by the City to issue a mostly
"administrative" Category II Creek Permit for work done in the Ridgemont
Basin, near the headwaters of Chimes Creek. Find out more about why we think
the City violated its own Creek Protection Ordinance. 

If you are interested in finding out how the City is planning to
rehabilitate the leaking sewer lines in the Creek, plan on attending a
community meeting that has been scheduled to discuss this project. This is a
project that should have been completed last year but was postponed until
this spring because the city engineers could not complete the drawings and
obtain the necessary permits before last October.
