So apparently having a City Councilman who works for the EPA isn't enough to earn Pacifica the "environmental community" award city leaders fancied we were due.
According to today's Tribune, Our Children's Earth Foundation has filed suit against the City of Pacifica for its endemic environmental contamination from Calera Creek Waste Water Treatment Plant.
Details to follow, so gather your tar balls while ye may . . .
Tribune: Organization sues city over sewage spills
I especially liked these comments from City Manager Steve Rhodes:
Manager Steve Rhodes agreed the complaint from OCE is counterproductive
toward meeting the same goals on both sides.
"Sometimes I wish we
would spend less on attorneys and more on projects. Our goals are all
the same. I'd rather be spending money replacing laterals. I get a
little frustrated." he said."
I get a little frustrated, too. I wish this city had spent money replacing laterals instead of bilking the Sewer Enterprise for $700,000 per year to fill holes in our no growth General Fund.
