Anyone surprised by this new development? Union Bay Estates has been discharging muddy construction runoff into the mouth of Hart/Washer Creek since at least Sept. 30, which is when the above pic was taken.
Does it surprise you that those in authority don’t seem concerned. Area A Director was copied on a letter regarding the discharge and responded with general answers about the coal hill remediation and completely ignored the discharge problem – completely ignored .
The same developer that wants you to trust them to dump 1875 cubic metres of sewage daily into Hart/Washer Creek safely.
The same developer who never bothered to obtain permits to clear the land north of McLeod Rd and never bothered to apply for a permit to use the cleared land as a gravel/sand pit until caught by an inspector of Mines.
Ya, that developer. The developer who doesn’t give a shit about Union Bay or those who reside here – imo.
The picture above shows the KIP pipe collecting data from Washer/Hart Creek. Notice that it is in the deepest spot under the train trestle where it’s like a bowl and really not an indicator of actual stream depth and flow since the areas on either side of the trestle are much higher meaning much more shallow than under the trestle.
Here’s a 36 second clip of the area under the trestle from July 31, 2021.
This image was posted on Facebook stating it is a lift station for the new development. Funny, the guy posting the picture turned off comments about this and yet allows a free for all and joins in when discussing people he views as a POS (piece of shit). When it comes to the developer, no one wants to hear concerns and wants to keep things positive. The gloves are off though for people they deem beneath them. Obviously, the new Sheriff and provider of information to visitors regarding the development, isn’t aware of the sewer application glitch. Details, who cares about details?
Where is it going to lift to, since the application started Feb. 2018 was determined to be ‘deficient’ and the developer must submit a complete final application. This was probably ordered a long time ago, prior to the application being found ‘deficient’.
As of today the application is still “Pending Customer”.
UPDATE: Video of the meeting. Didn’t get all my questions answered as some of those answering wandered off to things I didn’t ask, but have come away with more info. These meetings are so important and easy to attend and get answers from those making the decisions.
The first half hour is a presentation by each Area Director and the second half is questions.
