think this is bad - this ain't bad. wait til the runoff from development of the niven property starts trickling down those same old drainage ditches we've had for decades. lots of water that used to soak into 33 acres of raw land will now be draining from roofs, sidewalks, streets and sewer drains into - where? hwy 101 and some folks' living rooms, that's where. wasn't in the engineering plans, folks.
