DTSC directs additional action on Felicita Creek cleanup

We received good news today in form of a letter from the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) directing the Chatham Group (Potentially Responsible Parties) to do additional analysis to figure out how to 'reduce or stop the flow of site-related contaminants to the creek'.   DTSC Letter to Chatham PRPs

Today's directive from DTSC is evidence that DTSC is taking community input into consideration and helping bring all parties together to find a solution.  We appreciate their serious consideration of our comments and commitment on this issue and we commit to continue our efforts until the contributions and exposure at the creek are stopped.   This is a problem that can and should be solved.

You may recall that ENU filed comments in April ENU Comments on Felicita Creek Study asking the regulators to demand additional analysis and action on the creek cleanup.

Please take a moment to review today's letter from DTSC.

Water Regulators Respond to Felicita Creek Cleanup Feasibility Study

Today, the Regional Water Quality Control Board filed a letter responding to recommendations made by the Chatham PRP Group. WaterBoard June 15 2016 letter on Felicita Feasibility

ENU is very grateful that the Water Board has refused the 'status quo' of continued monitoring as the solution.  The Water Board has asked for more detailed monitoring and modeling of how the contaminants get into the creek so that a suitable and effective remediation can be pursued.

We thank the Board and the many regulators who are working hard to remedy this situation.

Please review this letter and stay involved in this important issue for our neighborhood.
