Subject: RE: [Friendsof2Creeks] Update on Rain on Sep 19, 2004
Dear Friends of Two Creeks,
Councilmember Brooks asked me to report to you that our office is actively engaged in working on solutions to the problems that occurred at Leona Quarry this weekend. Councilmember Brooks had a conversation with Marcel Uzegbu, the project manager to reiterate the community's concerns and highlight the need for proactive rather than reactive measures.
I am also participating in ongoing meetings where the City is working with DeSilva Gates to fomulate plans for the official "wet weather season" which starts October 15th. This is no excuse for last weekend, but it might help to know that by October 15th the development company is expected to have several measures in place that will guard against erosion during the winter. Thus far these measures include covering unfinished road surfaces with eight inches of 1"-4" rock, Hydroseeding areas that have been disturbed by grading, and placing erosion control fabric on slopes designated by the developers' engineer. In short the site will not remain in its present condition throughout the winter. Rather the development company is working to winterize the site so that it will be better prepared to absorb the kind of rain we saw on Sunday and more.
Councilmember Brooks would also like you to know that we will continue to advocate in the best interest of residents of District 6.
Councilmember Desley Brooks
