Compton!  This could be your creek!

Compton! This could be your creek! (download the study for more info)

The Watershed Council’s draft study looking at the feasibility of enhancing the habitat on the soft-bottom reach of Compton Creek is out!  And has been for a few weeks, er, Creekfreak has some catching up to do in passing along creek news!  It was as if Alex Kennefick, Compton Creek Watershed Coordinator, was speaking directly to me when he sent out this notice:

If you are a procrastinator, your tendencies have been rewarded.

We have pushed back the deadline to submit comments on the Draft Earthen Bottom Enhancement Feasibility Study until the close of business on January 16, 2009.  That’s right, you can enjoy the Draft Enhancement Feasibility Study at your home or office through the rest of 2008, and make no comments until January 16, 2009.  How is the Watershed Council able to make such an excellent value possible?

It’s easy: some of our institutional stakeholders have requested more time to fully review the document.


Following are directions on how to download the Draft Study from our FTP Site:

Use either Microsoft Internet Explorer or Microsoft Explorer

Navigate to ftp://www.lasgrwc.org/CCEBEFS/.

When prompted, enter username ‘lasg’ and password ‘watershed’.

Then simply drag the file ‘081201_CCEBEFS_review_draft.pdf’ onto your desktop, or cut and past the file into the folder of your choice.

The file will take from 15 minutes to an hour to download, depending on your connection speed.

Please contact me with any questions.

This is the study referenced in Compton Creek Fantasia.  And as in that post: conflict of interest alert: I am part of the design team that put this study together.  Mia Lehrer & Associates and Restoration Design Group partnered on this project.  

Ok, with that out of the way, I am hopeful that we can increase habitat in Compton Creek.  Your input will help make this a better study – please take a moment to download the study and send your comments to Alex.

  • me says:

    the link don’t work.

    You don’t have permission to view “CCEBEFS”.

  • Jessica Hall says:

    Hmmm…don’t know if you saw the instructions below the link, there’s id and password to enter as well.

    If that still doesn’t work, go to the Watershed Council website, where they also have the access to the ftp server listed. lasgrwc.org

  • Jose says:

    It would be nice to have the Compton water creek actually be rebuilt or be done how they say they want it to be. I want to see the study but I cannot see nothing. When is the study going to be done? This could benefit the people in Compton. It could help people actually walk and learn about nature instead of staying home. Or we could it make it a bike trail or walking trail. Hopefully the do it and that they don’t use the money on other not productive things. Could you keep us up with this please.

  • Jessica Hall says:

    Jose, couldn’t see the study? Try this.
    Click on the ftp link in the blog above. A box should open up.
    Under username, type: lasg
    Under password, type: watershed

    The plan is a file that you can drag to your desktop. Please let me know if you still can’t download it.

    Thanks for your comment! Yes, it would be so nice for a natural creek for people to enjoy!

  • Jose is right. It would be nice. But he doesn’t need a crack team of investigative bloggers to keep track of this project. He can call me directly.

    To answer Jose’s question–when is the plan coming out? The plan has been FROZEN by the state bond freeze. HOWEVER, the Watershed Council–the people writing the plan–AKA me— we’re taking out a loan to finish, finalize, and print the study.

    A draft is out, and it’s available for review on our FTP site. Since people have problems logging in–I’ll volunteer to sit here on the phone with them while they log into the site.

    Anyone who wants to make formal or informal comments on the Compton Creek Study are welcome to call me. I’m a fountain of information, and I get paid to sit around and talk about this study (but not for long). My phone number is above and here:
