Draft Compton Creek study available for comments
December 18, 2008 § 5 Comments
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.
