During the past months I have watched, with much concern, the saga of the errant grocery carts. Many letters appeared in The Times regarding this ongoing problem with these carts in our local neighborhoods. What about other areas? I use the bike trails adjacent to San Diego Creek in Irvine, UC Irvine and Newport Back Bay several days each week. Since the heavy rains and flooding in January and February, I've noticed at least a dozen grocery carts lying in the creek bed and Back Bay next to Jamboree Road Bridge.

Environmentalists opposed to clearing San Diego Creek have taken a preliminary step to sue Orange County to stop a $3.3-million tree-clearing project in the creek. County workers started clearing the creek last month to help prevent flooding of the upper Newport Bay in a large storm.

Work crews Saturday stemmed the flow of raw sewage from a ruptured pipeline, but not before more than 1 million gallons of effluent spilled into San Diego Creek and washed into Newport Bay. A 200-foot section of the pipe was washed away by gushing water from last week's heavy rains. Workers who labored around the clock Friday night and Saturday built a bypass and plugged the leak about 3 p.m. Saturday.

The fate of a pedestrian bridge that would link the Crossroads and Westpark Plaza shopping centers will be decided by the City Council on Sept. 13. The Irvine Co. agreed build the $500,000 bridge across San Diego Creek several years ago in exchange for city approval of the Westpark Plaza development. The company has asked the City Council to remove the bridge requirement from the development agreement.

Construction is scheduled to begin next week on the second phase of an improvement project for a two-mile stretch of San Diego Creek.

Regulators have agreed to reduce a $100,000 fine facing the Irvine Ranch Water District for failing to promptly report the accidental discharge of millions of gallons of reclaimed water into a Newport Bay tributary last year. The water district will instead pay a $10,000 fine and conduct $49,000 worth of water testing under a settlement reached in recent days with the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board.

Tough new restrictions will be imposed countywide on use of the pesticide endosulfan because of concentrations of the chemical found in shellfish in the San Diego Creek and Newport Bay, the county chief deputy agriculture commissioner said Thursday. The controls, which a state official called "among the tightest restrictions anywhere in the state," will prohibit use of the pesticide in Orange County fields where there is measurable irrigation runoff into flowing or fish-bearing waters.

Health officials Friday warned swimmers and kayakers to stay out of Upper Newport Bay after an estimated 6,000 gallons of partially treated sewage leaked into a tributary from a water reclamation plant Thursday morning. The spill coincides with the state's decision to fine the Irvine Ranch Water District, responsible for Thursday's spill, for failing to report a broken pipeline that released about 5 million gallons of reclaimed water into San Diego Creek on June 7.

Two proposals that could help determine the future of Newport Bay will be the topic of a public hearing today at the state Water Quality Control Board's Santa Ana regional office in Riverside. Silverado Constructors, the contractor building the Eastern tollway to link the Santa Ana Freeway with the Riverside Freeway, applied last week for a state permit to empty as much as 2.5 million gallons of waste water a day into a bay tributary.

For the second time in two weeks, hazardous-material teams and cleanup crews Wednesday were called on to handle a chemical spill in San Diego Creek. The spill, several hundred gallons of a chlorinated hydrocarbon liquid, was kept from reaching the environmentally sensitive areas of Upper Newport Bay by a dam erected across the creek channel at Campus Drive, according to Pat Antrim of the Orange County Fire Department.
