I see that some effort has been made to rectify the water flowing over the sidewalk north and/or west of the train trestle on Legacy (on the right just past the overpass on Legacy between Lebanon and Chippewa). Can you tell me what the problem is (seems like a natural creek since it flows constantly, even in drought conditions) and what has/will be done to mitigate the situation.
Also, in the same area a small retaining wall has been erected to hold back soil that is migrating down the hill. Is this structure approved by the city to be left there, and if not what will be the owner(s) be responsible for?

The water is coming from an extensive "duct bank" that was installed parallel with Legacy drive by CoServ Electric. Ground water travels down the duct bank and surfaces at the manhole. Two surface grates were installed to catch the water and channel it into a pipe that runs to the gutter on Legacy. The retaining wall is holding a portion of the embankment and crucial to the stability of that area.
