Event 2 - 22 May 2016 (erosion controls not maintained)

Although a silt fence was installed, it has not been maintained. It has been flattened in the middle. So much sediment has been collected behind one portion of the fence, it is sagging into the gutter. The fact that so much sediment was collected shows the effectiveness of silt fences, but the sediment needs to be removed before the fence suffers a total blowout. This site is in the Barton Springs Zone. Reported again to the City on May 22, 2016.
