Metro's soil sampling drilling in El Sereno--Joe Cano Video 

Published on Mar 9, 2013
This contractor crew were informed of the monitoring by the NO On 710 groups prior to starting up. Note the drilling rig was older & dirtier than the newer one used in So. Pasadena & this drilling unit was louder. Also, please note the amount of exhaust coming from the truck with the barrels for the soil samples as it drives away. Who do we report this to? Not only does El Sereno get extra noise, but we get an extra dose of pollution in the face as a bonus. I would like to know if this crew billed Metro for an entire workday. The notice of drilling stated all work starts at 8:00AM, but the rig arrived around 9:00AM, then the crew drove off the site at 10:30AM. Late to work early lunch. Nice work if you can get it.
