No, the cleanup is fully funded, so no issue there. Also, I noticed that drilling was being done at the site yesterday.

Take care,

Bob and Kyle,

I just finished reading the monthly update on the Sellers/Auto Cleanup from Orance County EPD, and was reminded that we have yet to receive any update on progress of the Spelman Cleanup from either the City or the contractor. Could you please update me on work currently being done on the site. I have seen the little orange wire flags in the highly contaminated area so I believe something is going on there. Please also tell me who from the contractor will be responsible for updating interested members of the public, and send me their contact information.

Kyle, I recently learned that our State Legislature is cutting funding of the Inland Trust fund which is used for cleanup of some contaminated sites (including the Sellers/Auto site). Will this affect the Spelman Site cleanup at all?

Thanks for your time.
