Residents complain of K-rail mosquitoes

Eight households in the 5400 block of La Forest Drive banded together to send a letter to the city’s Public Works Department complaining of a boost in mosquito activity around the K-rails installed in the fall to protect the Station fire burn area neighborhood from debris flows.

In the undated letter, copied to the Valley Sun on April 30, the neighbors claimed that “ it was observed that the four holes on top of all the large K-rails had become filled with water from the recent rains, and in some of the water-filled holes mosquitos [sic] were breeding.”

Signed by Albert Braun, Louis Dubeau, Walt Kaletsch, Gavin Liau, Stan Manatt, Danny Na, Cory Ryken and Richard Weyermuller, the letter calls for the city to cap the holes.

Edward Hitti, director of public works, said he received the letter Monday and instructed field crews to seal the openings by the end of this week.
