Odds and Ends 59

Well, I had a particularly wonderful "holiday" yesterday on what is usually my day of most fun.

But it is time to get back to reality and the issues at hand.

The surgery I am having is a total hip replacement which is going to be done on Thursday. The first surgery on my right hip to remove dead bone and graft new bone tissue failed, so now I get the more frequently done operation.

There is still not much to report on the Ponte Vista at San Pedro project, but that may be a good thing. I am hoping that the Planning Department is going over the application and studies with a very fine tooth comb to insure that whatever they feel should be built on the site will actually be to the benefit of everyone in OUR community.

The Los Angeles County Sanitation District is considering building a third tunnel from the treatment plant just off the Harbor Freeway and out into the Pacific Ocean. is Web site you can learn more about the Clear Water Program.

If the determination is made to build the third tunnel, construction won't begin before 2012, but it will last eight years, perhaps.

If a new tunnel is built, there will need to be an open air shaft dug to place the tunnelling machine underground and provide access to the tunnel.

Eastview Park is a City of Rancho Palos Verdes park that is on land leased to the City by the Los Angeles County Sanitation District. Whether the large shaft will actually be dug on that location is one more issue to be carefully studied for any future building that may or may not occur.
