First: The Clean Water Now! Coalition would like to thank the City of Laguna Beach for its conspicuous absence regarding the named litigants of the latest stormwater prescriptions by Cal/EPA SDRWQCB Order No. R9-2009-0002 (NPDES No. CAS0108740), South Orange County Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4 Permit). The same permittees names appear in the South OC civil complaint filed this month with Cal/EPA who fought compliance during the previous cycle in 2002 (County of Orange, OC Flood Control and ALL municipalities)

"And so castles made of sand fall in the sea, eventually." -- Jimi Hendrix There has been a great deal of interest lately among Laguna Beach residents that to solve our pedestrian problems we should build bridges or dig tunnels. Humans, and especially Americans, love these "think big" engineering solutions. Some Lagunatics were pulling for the Village Entrance project to include one or both of these options to carry foot traffic from one side of Laguna Canyon Road to the other, with "Safety First" as the mantra.

The New Year is a time when folks put their best foot forward. No reason the city can't do the same. Here's what some people would like to see the city do in 2013.

Anne Earhart's letter ("We can't ignore this global climate change," Sept. 30) adds another important voice to the relationship of ocean pollution, energy efficiency and global climate change. Every day, each of us contributes to a sewage system serving 232,000 residents from Emerald Bay and Laguna Beach to the Dana Point Headlands, plus another half dozen inland cities. Annually, 3.9 million visitors add their contributions. The Aliso Ocean Outfall, operating since Oct. 1 on an expired permit, discharges 15 mgd (million gallons per day)

ACT V is fine place for city yard (Re: "Should the city corporation yard be moved to ACT V?" Coastline Pilot, Dec. 20) Absolutely. That was the recommendation of the 1996 report, and the site is logical for a corporation yard. As I recall, when Wayne Peterson was on the council, he stated that he had inspected every possible location for it and only ACT V met any sensible criteria. Bastardizing the Village Entrance by enclosing the corporation yard inside it is silly, a poor use of some of the most valuable land in Laguna.

Editor's note: This is the first of a series of three columns to address the runoff problem, overwatering from irrigation and the transporting of fertilizers, pesticides and nutrients to the ocean. The city of Laguna Beach early this summer mailed a message about changes in lawn watering regulations and a request for help from all of us. Many Orange County cities are being directed by state regulatory agencies to no longer accept runoff from over-irrigation and land watering that drains to the storm drain systems, and the state is requiring cities to amend the municipal codes to prohibit runoff.
