Friends of Arana Gulch
While the rest of us are conserving as best as we can during this drought, the Broadway Brommer (BB) project is consuming our savings. While there is nothing inherently wrong with a water truck on a construction site, the contractor doing the work in dry, dusty conditions was warned - twice - about its leaking water truck. The huge water truck is filled from the fire hydrant located at the harbor entrance to Arana Gulch.
The first water waste warning was on 9/1, when the truck sat overnight in the harbor's boat storage yard, leaking from two places.
The second warning was on 9/5, as the truck sat above the work at Arana Creek and leaked for eight hours.
Apparently no one cared about wasting water, even over the weekend, when no work was being preformed. Two days in a row (9/6 and 9/7) with the water truck left behind for the weekend, drip, drip, dripping. Yes, the contractor paid for the water. This begs the question: does paying make it okay to waste? We think not.
