We ask the Folsom City Council to protect and save our Hinkle Creek Nature Preserve.

In 2014 the City of Folsom City Council authorized $268,000 to evaluate building a road through the Hinkle Creek Nature Area to maintain a ~35 year old sewer line which will cost the City an additional $1 million dollars to construct.  This road will scar the pristine natural park and destroy 75-125 oak trees. Rather than building a road to provide access for sewer maintenance vehicles, we ask the City Council to seriously evaluate other alternatives to ensure the sewer line is properly maintained.

One very viable alternative would be to contract with a qualified contractor to provide annual sewer line maintenance.  We have identified qualified contractors who have the necessary equipment, experience and have provided maintenance services to municipalities, cities and counties throughout Northern California. This would accomplish the following:  1.  High quality sewer maintenance that begins in weeks, not the months it would take to construct a road.  2. Save the City +$1,000,000 and have minimal impact on operating expenses.  3. Eliminate the road and save 75-125 mature oak trees as well as leave the area untouched for the various species of wildlife that call this area home.
