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.
