April 2006: Handwritten Note explaining why DEQ has no Choice but to Allow Molalla to Discharge into Bear Creek

This note was copied from the DEQ files on Molalla STP. The author is Lyle Christiansen, a DEQ employee who handled the Molalla case file. The city had made the same request a year earlier. In both years (2005 and 2006) the septic ponds were overfilling and Molalla STP recognized they would not be able to comply with the seasonal closure of Bear Creek, which was supposed to begin on the first of May.
