A third well at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory on-site groundwater treatment system has been completed, part of an ongoing groundwater clean-up project. Since 2005, the on-site groundwater treatment system has been removing perchlorate ? which has been traced to thyroid gland disorders ? and volatile organic compounds from groundwater that was contaminated over 50 years ago through fuel used in rockets during the time JPL was working with the U.S. military. JPL stopped the military work in the late 1950s but the damage to the groundwater had already been done.

Last week an area newspaper asked its readers if they thought La Canada Flintridge should buy the 30 acres of Metropolitan Water District surplus land for sale in Hahamongna. Since the city of Pasadena has already submitted a purchase offer to Metropolitan for the land, an equally interesting question might be: what does Pasadena plan to do with the land if they are successful in buying it? Pasadena Mayor Bogaard and City Manager Cynthia Kurtz have both stated publicly that Pasadena will not evict Rose Bowl Riders and Tom Sawyer Camp, two well-loved La Cañada institutions which have been located on the property for decades.

Owners of La Cañada Flintridge properties that have septic tanks could be forced to pay as much as $1,800 each year for a permit for septic systems, if the regional water quality control board and the county are unable to negotiate an agreement that would allow the county to continue permitting septic systems. Under the current agreement, the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board has been issuing to homeowners waivers stating that septic systems did not need a permit from the WQCB since the Los Angeles County Health Department was the agency providing permits, Jenny Newman of the WQCB said.

Strong winds disrupted power and darkened areas of La Cañada Flintridge Sunday as a familiar - but unexpected - type of storm dusted local mountains with snow in weather events a climatologist says is making for a "very strange fall." Gusts up to 50 mph knocked a tree branch into power equipment near Briggs Avenue and El Moreno Street in La Crescenta Sunday morning, leaving about 2,000 Southern California Edison customers in La Cañada and La Crescenta in the dark for two hours, SCE spokeswoman Christine McLeod said.
