To the delight of environmentalists, the Los Angeles Board of Public Works voted unanimously Friday to launch an environmental study on the impact of a nearly completed dumping site for septic tank waste in the Sepulveda Basin. The board's vote followed an appeal by Councilwoman Laura Chick to study several possible environmental side effects of the project at the basin's existing sewage treatment plant, including excessive truck traffic and contamination of parkland next to the facility.

The Suzhou Creek, which flows through the center of Shanghai, is so polluted the water looks black. It smells none too pleasant, either. Half a world away from this creek that is virtually an open sewer, Chinese engineers have been working with American engineers in Pasadena to solve the problem. At Engineering-Science, a subsidiary of Parsons Corp., one of the world's largest engineering firms, six engineers from Shanghai have made one corner of a fourth-floor office their home since May.
