DPW Lamb Street

How many times do you have to landscape a property before you realize it's contaminated?

Here are a number of photos which show varying landscapes at the DPW - starting Sept 2015.
I'm sure some believed the drought last summer was the cause.
And I suppose I could see it that way too, if the photos didn't date back as far as Sept. 2015.

Look through the photography with captions and decide for yourself.

Let's start with a satellite photo of the area - just beyond the first gate - Sept 2015
Sept 2015 - Here's the landscape at the second gate.

Here's the dpw in April of 2016. Notice the LARGE shrubs in front of the fence (right side of gate) - notice also browning on the shrubs

The photo below was taken June 2016 - notice again the shrubs - some were replaced by smaller ones.

Now, here's the front of the DPW again in August 2016
Notice the grass is dying and mulch piled high around the trees.

On Saturday, 9/10/2016 Lamb Street (the road in front of the dpw) was opened.
I believe it was Lisco Irrigation working on the irrigation system.
On 9/12/2016 I did some drive by snaps of the area while Lisco was there removing/replacing trees and shrubs again.
Sorry for the quality of the photos I was shooting through a windshield while driving.
Here is a blurry photo BUT you can still see a new tree, with orange tag, behind the fence, waiting to be planted.

9-12-16 That night I drove by after Lisco left to see what was going on - and clean soil is found at the DPW obviously for the new landscape

Here's the area after landscaping, with some new top soil, and irrigation up and running.

A New Well Water Sign is Added to the Property

I hope this was enough to assist you in coming to a conclusion about the property.

Also, if anyone knows the people at Lisco Irrigation, could you give them the heads up about what they were
digging in that day? - They have the right to know.
