The Riverside County Flood Control District was fined $100,000 and agreed to tighten internal procedures Wednesday after positioning large oil drums along the Santa Ana River to thwart trespassers. The district and one of its employees were sued by district attorneys in Riverside and San Bernardino counties after a 2003 discovery of 14 large steel barrels stacked atop a Santa Ana River levee in Colton. The 2004 suit alleged illegal transportation and disposal of hazardous waste.

A series of hearings will begin this week on how to preserve the habitat of an endangered songbird whose home is in the path of a proposed $1.2 billion flood control project on the Santa Ana River. Once as common as a sparrow, only about 250 pairs of the least Bell's vireo remain in the wild, with a substantial number of those found upriver from Prado Dam along the Orange-Riverside county line.

It hasn't rained for a couple of weeks, but the huge natural sump that gives this community its name is still brimming with floodwaters. And that's the least of the problems. Not only is the lake draining so slowly that shoreline campgrounds are still flooded and Larry Fregin's back-yard basketball court remains eight feet under water, but the floodwaters also have inundated a rural neighborhood a mile away. So much for a $50-million flood control project that didn't quite pass its first test.
