Cleanup crews are wrapping up an emergency repair on a southeast Huntington Beach toxic waste dump, giving local residents a preview of an eventual long-term cleanup of the site. The winter's rains pushed the five toxic lagoons on the site to near capacity, causing officials with the state Department of Toxic Substances Control to worry that the hazardous materials dumped there might break the landfill's levees and spill into streets and storm drains.

Police on Tuesday remained uncertain if small knife blades found at a Newport Beach park were placed there deliberately. Crews sifting through the sand Monday found two more blades, bringing the total to 15 blades found at a Bonita Canyon park, where a 5-year-old child stepped on a blade Saturday morning. The blade did not break skin on the child's foot, and he was not injured, said Sgt. Bill Hartford. Police and grounds crews swept the entire playground with a metal detector.

A Huntington Beach petroleum plant may be responsible for an oil spill late last month, the California Department of Fish and Game announced today. According to Carol Singleton, a spokeswoman for the department, officials were nearly certain the oil came from the Angus Petroleum Corporation at 1901 California St., but were running tests before taking any action. “We’re very sure,” she said. “But we have to be really thorough, so we’ve taken oil samples and we’re getting them processed through our petroleum chemistry lab. All indication is that it’s the Angus plant.

A group of northwest Huntington Beach residents unsuccessfully banded together July 17 to prevent the eleventh-hour removal of a decades-old, city-owned tree in their neighborhood. When the residents learned the tree on Galway Circle was going to be cut down within hours, they began making calls to the city, seeking answers and trying to stop the removal. They hired an arborist to determine whether the tree in question was a risk to the sewage system. About a dozen neighbors stood at one end of the street, awaiting 10:30 a.m., when crews standing on the other end of the cul-de-sac were slated to begin the tree removal.

With the weather as hot as it’s been lately, I’ve been taking my orientation crews from the Orange County Conservation Corps to work on projects along the coast. For our most recent job, I checked with Grace Adams at the Bolsa Chica Conservancy to see what needed doing the most. She pointed out that the Brazilian peppers that my crews cut down last year had resprouted. The biologists with the Department of Fish and Game were supposed to have sprayed the resprouts with herbicide after we cut the nonnative trees, but they didn’t.

On May 5, anyone passing by Winslow Drive, a quiet residential neighborhood in Huntington Beach, got to see a stunning sight. City crews arrived first thing in the morning and began systematically cutting down virtually every tree on the street. I spoke with a crewman. He said there were many such streets throughout the city that would be treated similarly. The only visible clue as to which streets were affected were the no-parking signs (with inaccurate dates)

Cleanup crews continued to remove debris from the Huntington Beach coastline Wednesday after a series of heavy storms over the last week. Scott Smith, the city’s beach operations supervisor, said crews planned to keep busy for the next few days. Another rainstorm hit the area Tuesday, but it was much milder than the recent storms. “Given what’s out there now, and provided we don’t get any more severe storms, we should be cleaned up within a week,” Smith said.
