Mr. Hyde said that the Village has many <br />mileseof sewer along creek beds and added that the Village is trying to get rid <br />of possible underground seepage into the creek bed by installing the Sewer. <br />Nrs. Kaufman suggested that if the flow of the creek had noF been diverted <br />because of the silt, no bank protection would be necessary. She added that, if <br />the sanitary sewer should be constructed through the island, the island could <br />be more clearly defined and be an attraction for wild life.
