December 2009 Flooding

The project is violating its permits using its own historic and current measurements. They brought most of this on themselves by clearing the whole site with essentially no construction runoff controls, and it will haunt them because they are overstating what they can do with storm water quality in the setting. There is "fast", "cheap", and "high quality" - you can only do two of the three.

The only way to avoid this is to slow down and phase the construction; these guys are still accelerating and we have the spectacle of FDOT granting money to pay FDEP fines. As long as the money comes from the tooth fairy there is no reason to comply, but at least the PR-crazy boosters could stop claiming to "preserve West Bay forever" and blathering about "state of the art". That lasted about two months, and it was only to hoodwink the greens anyway. We are way past that phase.
