from the 6/25/12 "What we know," document:
- Shastice park (in Mt.ShastaCity) stream water has 1540 ug/l of aluminum. Other streams have more, certainly bad for aquatic insects if permanent.
The problem is, there are no streams in Shastice Park. It is near my house and I go there often. Shastice Park has athletic fields, community garden and skating areas, but no stream. There is another park in town which does have a stream, and there is a quasi-park at Sisson Meadows owned by the Siskiyou Land Conservancy that has a couple of streams. Perhaps the sample came from one of these other locations, but who knows. This is an example of Francis' carelessness with details.
