In June Judge James C. Chalfant issued a stinging tentative decision in favor of the Arroyo Seco Foundation and Pasadena in ourr lawsuit against County Flood Control's Big Dig sediment program in Hahamongna Watershed Park. A July 30th date for a full hearing has now been postponed in order to finalize details of a settlement agreement now being developed.

Tim Brick, Arroyo Seco Foundation Managing Director, said, "Based on the County's response to our settlement offer, ASF and Pasadena Audubon are cautiously

optimistic that we can substantially reduce the negative impacts of the Flood Control District's devastating excavation and trucking proogram, but we needed extra time to work out the details."

A new hearing has now been set for October 15, 2019.
