I've talked to various FOSC-folk over the years who have seen the sulfur 
mine runoff near McDonnell Ave.  A bright orange creek bed, where the 
water has a pH of around 3.  A couple of the Merritt College creek 
classes I took stopped by to look at the place.  So here's some 
encouraging news:

The downside is that the owner of the mine also owns much surrounding 
open space, which he'll be free to develop once the pollution is addressed.
