West Pasadena Residents' Association (WPRA) seeks help fighting SR-710 tunnels.

From Sylvia Plummer, January 10, 2015

Thanks to WPRA and their effort to protect neighborhoods from the SR-710 Tunnels.  They are looking for anyone with knowledge in the following areas:    Seismology, Tunnel Safety, Biological Assessment, General Construction, Economic Impact, Environmental Justice, and Water use and rights.

If you can volunteer your services please contact  Sarah Gavit at gavit@wpra.net
