As a longtime resident/taxpayer, what is going on with our residential replacement?

Contractors come into older neighbourhoods and do not follow city bylaws. They haul dirt, leaving a mud trail along our street washing down our driveways. Why are they allowed to dump silt down our fish-supporting water drainage system? Where are the city inspectors? Where is the enforcement?

We have contacted the City of Surrey, and we’re still waiting.

In the meanwhile, the rain has washed away most of the mud down the fish habitat.
