Pollutants will still enter the lake
8:58 am CST March 4, 2014

In the Feb. 27 issue of The Winnetka Current, Richard Kates, a Village Council Trustee, has asked us to “Walk outside and look around in Winnetka.  Do you see a toxic waste dump?”  Well Mr. Kates, actually, I am a resident who does walk outside each day, specifically at the Spruce Street outflow of our lakefront. I take my dogs on daily walks to that area. Unfortunately, from a relatively small pipe there, which is supposed to be only “harmless” stormwater, on countless occasions, I see and have photographed disturbing pollution.
