Portola Springs odors
« on: January 15, 2020, 10:02:53 PM »
Irvine mayor and city staff are coming tomorrow Thursday at 5 pm to survey the 250k cleanup of Bee Canyon Wash from years of leftover organic sediment that is the main culprit causing the periodic odors of this area.

I’ve also lobbied and have gotten approval for regular maintenance of this channel to prevent odors. I’ve also gotten the Irvine company to mow the dry bush from the hill at tomato springs which was completed today.

City manager and I met today with a few neighbors. An independent scientific consultant is also hired as of today to test the wash and ensure safety of it for future.

The meeting will be tomorrow Thursday 5 pm just outside the property at 113 Tomato Spring, Irvine, CA (please wait outside, do not ring the door of this house). Mayor Shea and city directors and consultants will be there.

If any of you have been affected by the odors (probably because you live within 1000 feet of Bee Canyon Wash) and have the ability to come tomorrow, it’d be nice so we can seal the deal and ensure all voices are heard and the project gets done.

Cleanup will start next week and we are told it will be completed by end of Feb 2020.

Would this get filed under environmental issue or just a nuisance?  Either way I guess it'll get rectified based on the ops post.  But what if the expert states there's nothing wrong based on their tests, do they still do a clean up or is the clean up a done deal already?

IHS was spot on.  Looks like Bee Canyon Wash is the trash gravy pool he was referring to back in 2016:

Stonegates, Lutheran sport fields, and Eastwood is also in the proximity of this trash gravy, no?

Damn, they better contain this quick.

But IHS also lately recommended Cal Pac homes in that location. Change of minds?

You forgot Orchard Hills, Northwood Pointe, Portola High, Northwood High, and on and on.

BTW, who that Mo Jay? Forgive me if I'm ignorant. Ready to be disciplined.

He/she doesn’t have to be a regular to post that kind of info. Congratulation on convincing the decision makers to come and see the issue.

Hmmm.... "leftover organic sediment" is quite the gentle name.

Although "Trash Gravy" is my current favorite, any other less sanitized names we can use to better describes the "LOS"?

Deleting my comment. I’m getting confused. I thought this was regarding the asphalt smell.

But I have been talking about PS. Should of listened to me and others.
