It must not be so much fun to be Lower Merion School District, huh? Is there a whiff of future litigation on the horizon from a different source?

Remember waaaaayyyyyyy back when I mentioned somewhere in a post about Beaumont Retirement Community in Bryn Mawr having their beautiful pond fouled by runoff from Harriton High School? Maybe most recently it came up after stormwater & runoff discussions occured with the Merion Community Coalition and St. Joe's on the Maguire Campus debacle?

Well, looks like my intel from way back when was spot on. Please see another fine mess Lower Merion School District has gotten themselves into, and yet the threat of yet more potential litigation. Cha-cha-cha-ching indeed.

A little birdie dripped on me a letter from a firm representing Beaumont dated February4th, 2010 that is a Notice of Intent to Sue Under the Clean Water Act and Clean Streams Law. Hmmmm, how cost effective will the Taj Mahal construction jobs have been when this all shakes out?

More evidence of the gross incompetence of LMSD and the school board. Mistakes can happen, but I read this that LMSD has ignored this whole issue and tried to brush it under the rug.

And, what about the township? Is LMT not supposed to monitor this stuff for compliance?

Mill Creek already has enough ecosystem issues with the township-wide problem of stormwater runoff.

No doubt this not only harms Beaumont, but it further harms one of Lower Merion's natural treasures in Mill Creek, which is fast becoming a silt filled bog.

What's up with the other suit about parking buses? Maybe they can park the buses in Mill Creek.

And how about the Narberth School suit? And Blunt/Concerned Black Parents? I'm starting to lose track of all the school district lawsuits. Someone needs to provide an illustrative and educational cartoon!
