Editor: On behalf of the Ellen’s Creek Watershed Group I want to congratulate the Kent building supplies organization, the APM company and Island Excavators for their environmental stewardship during the construction of Kent’s new outlet in West Royalty.
The manner in which APM engineers and Island Excavators controlled the storm runoffs into the east branch of the Ellen’s Creek (Hazard Creek) represents a significant improvement over recent such developments in the area and also represents a model for similar developments in the future.
These three organizations have shown what developers can do with forethought and modest investment to protect our watersheds. They are to be commended.
The Ellen’s Creek Watershed Group is not opposed to development in watershed areas of the city so long as the environmental sensitivity shown by the Kent organization features in all such undertakings in the future
