4620 Brookdale is about three blocks east of High Street in the 
Courtland Creek watershed.  When this was first reported last week the 
Tribune ran a piece mistakenly saying the site was near Sausal Creek.  
 From other reports this may not be the first time paint was dumped at 
the site.  Let's hope they can clean it up.
