Bad example of city work polluting watershed when Combs' project is on the consent agenda

The top of this stormwater-collection box was undamaged until a front-end loader parked on top of it as it was scraping the street and spreading hotmix on the street. And there was no danger of a highly dangerous pollutant starting its journey to Beaver Lake from that point until the "renovation" of the square started.

Has anyone met a person who thought the square needed renovation? I have talked to dozens and the only one who could see an advantage to replacing the sidewalk was a young man with a skateboard, who said that a smooth sidewalk would be better for skaters. The old pebbly surface seemed perfect to people whose priority is avoiding the danger of falling on a slick surface.

Please scroll down this blog to see related photos of the work on the square being inspected late last week.

John Paschal among the heroes of the White River Watershed

John Paschal and his 30-pound cat are a formidable team. Paschal is a member of the West Fork Environmental Protection Association and was a founding member of the group that stopped the proposed landfill in the watershed of the Middle Fork of the White River. Do we need to form a Town Branch EPA and an Illinois River EPA to protect the watersheds in Fayetteville?
