Bill Bathgate planted his feet gingerly on the raw edge of Oso Creek and pointed down its steep bank. "See that orange tree?" Bathgate said, motioning toward a tree that had toppled to the creek floor. "Two months ago that was part of the orange grove. You can see it's just beginning to wilt. See that eucalyptus? It slipped down, too."

The Orange County Transit Authority on Monday approved the use of $5.9 million to stabilize a section of railroad tracks along Oso Creek. The section was damaged during heavy El Nino rains in February 1998. The proposed repairs would raise the Oso Creek bottom by 18 feet and stabilize the slope between the creek and the railroad tracks. The rail line is used for passenger service by Amtrak and Metrolink as well as freight service by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad.

Officials of the powerful Schuller Ministries claim that repair work along the storm-ravaged Oso Creek threatens to devastate the church's picturesque Rancho Capistrano, especially if more rain arrives soon. Victor Andrews, a spokesman for Schuller Ministries, which also owns Garden Grove's Crystal Cathedral, said the project has actually worsened the creek's severe erosion problems and helped wash out about 10 acres at the religious retreat during the recent storm.

The Orange County Health Care Agency closed a mile-long portion of Doheny State Beach, from the breakwater to the south end of the unincorporated strip of land, after a pair of spills at a Moulton Niguel Water District treatment plant in Mission Viejo. On Saturday, roughly 21,000 gallons of raw sewage overflowed into Oso Creek, which ultimately empties onto the state beach, agency spokeswoman Monica Mazur said.
