How A Park Got Into A Sewer

In this space you'll read the latest reporting on the slow, yet fast-moving process of the contentious Los Osos Sewer project. You'll read material from former Bay Breeze editor, Ron Crawford (quoted with permission), and other official sources. Every effort will be made to attribute every "fact" to a credible source.

Full disclosure: I lived in Los Osos five years ago and know many of the players in this saga, on the LOCSD and in the neighborhood. I'm certain everyone wants what's best for the community. Yet it's almost as certain these events need the constant light of responsible media reporting to enable a better public understanding.

One simple question has refocused my attention on the sewer issue. Ron Crawford asked in his sewerwatch blog: How did a park get into the sewer in the first place? We're looking for real answers and better information.

When the public gets the unvarnished truth, it knows what actions to take. Here's a New Times recap of the action in the last few weeks. You are invited to send your fact-based reporting to this page editor through the CCNews Mission email address in the upper right corner of the page. You may also want to leave a comment; I'd like to know what you think.
