Plastic mesh has been placed around the drainage area in an effort to slow erosion, which occurs when dirt, or weathered particles, are carried away by moving water.
Eastham on Tuesday said Pete Wronikowski visited him personally to ask that the city look into the situation, and Eastham told him they would do so.
“We’re going to get to the bottom of that,” said Eastham.
Eastham said a sewer lift station, or a facility used to move wastewater from lower to higher elevations, is located at the bottom of Richardson Drive, next to the Wronikowskis’ home, and said the area is regularly monitored.
“They’re done a lot of work down there, and we won’t ignore this,” said Eastham. “ ... It’s not irreparable. We’re going to make a good thing out of it.”
Girdler on Monday apologized to Pete Wronikowski for a lack of response, and he said officials would contact Wronikowski as soon as they hear back on the insurance coverage.
