May 27, 1999 — Initial Investigation

Called The Manager At Chesser Island Road Land Fill And Asked Him If They Were Using The Creek For Anything. He Said That In The Past They Have Used Water From One Of The Creek'S Tributaries That Flows Thru The Landfill For Dust Control, But Water Levels Are So Low Due To Lack Of Rainfall That They Have Ceased This Operation. He Said That The Creek Is Fed From The Swamp, And That Swamp Water Levels Are Low This Year Due To The Dry Conditions.
