Response to Paul Snoey Article on Storm Water Run Off

I thought this comment was worth publishing because I know not every one reads the comments under posts, and it is worth reading.

Sadly, the silt is not surprising given the poor storm water runoff control by developers and lack of enforcement by our city. As an example, drive along Royle Rd. and look at all the dirt in the ferns along the drainage ditch on the outside of their storm water runoff fencing on the southeast side of road near the HS…this is right above Gee Creek, and just waiting for a rainfall event to wash all that dirt into the creek!!!  This is exactly why we need storm water runoff permits and regulations at construction sites! I hope these folks get fined for their disregard to our environment and storm water drainage systems. Their mitigation tactics are sub-par and they have the means to do better!
