Peter Auger, City Manager of Novi, Destroys Watershed Neighborhood

Just when you thought the state of Michigan couldn’t be more corrupt that it is under the Whitmer-Benson-Soros dynasty (see articles below for details), the Novi, Michigan local yocals are actively destroying protected wetlands to benefit private builders and a corrupt city management team, while the EGLE and state of Michigan turn a blind eye in this wetland destruction.

The neighborhood is a huge wetland watershed protected by environmental laws, or so the residents thought until the city manager- Peter “the Ogre” Auger- decided to use public Enterprise Funds to benefit his builder buddy Mark Guidobono of Cambridge Builders to put sewer lines throughout the wetlands. Neighbors have lived in the area for decades and were perfectly content with their large lots and septic and well systems. The ongoing dewatering/watershed destruction project is now a two-year disaster and getting worse, having destroyed 13 ponds and hundreds of acres of wetland forests.

The city of Novi boasts about its protection of wetlands in this glossy report:

See the commitment that the City of Novi has on paper….In practice, however, the city management and council give builders, not birds, fish and current homeowners, priority over Huron River watershed use.

.

The Gabriels have joined their neighbors in taking on the City of Novi and its city manager Peter Auger for their wanton destruction of a protected watershed. AIM readers will be thrilled to follow the story, not just for its drama and intrigue that we will be revealing in coming weeks, but so that you can learn guerrilla techniques to shame and blame your own out-of-control school and community boards. Hang on, folks….the city of Novi hasn’t met the ferocity of AIMCats on a mission. It’s going to be epic.

One of the first things you will want to know about this story is that the community had a professional with over 40 years experience look at the area. Mike Wilczynski is a certified professional geologists from Pangea Environmental. Mr. Wilczynski reports:


.

Pangea Environmental, LLC was contacted by the State Conservation Committee of the Sierra Club to investigate complaints that Garfield Lake and nearby wetlands and ponds were drying up as a result of sewer construction.  We looked at water well logs, topographic maps from the US Geological Survey, Geological Map of Oakland County, conducted field visits and spoke with residents.  Additional information was recently provided by the City of Novi.  This included piezometer (monitoring well) logs along the sewer construction route and groundwater drawdown from pumping over time.

Based on our review of the information, it is our opinion the problems encountered during the boring for the sewer should have been foreseen if a simple geological survey was conducted.  We believe this project should not have been approved using the current methods, if at all.

The Geological Map of Oakland County indicates areas of glacial till in the route of the sewer.  Glacial till is material that was just dumped at the front of a glacier as it is at a standstill or retreating.  This includes material ranging in size from clay to boulders.  It is these boulders that are slowing down the boring for the sewer line.  Boring for the sewer line works well in glacial outwash, which is also present, but not so well in till.  

The water well records indicated groundwater as shallow as 5 feet below the surface.  The topographic maps indicate surface water that is connected to the groundwater. Garfield Lake is a former gravel pit that has filled with groundwater.  Wetlands are also formed by shallow groundwater.

The pumping of groundwater to lower the water table (or groundwater surface) has dropped the groundwater levels close to 20 ft along the sewer route since the start of the project.  The large volume of groundwater removed is causing an area of a lowered water table and is removing water from Garfield Lake and wetlands due to the connection to the groundwater.  This area of depressed water table and draining of surface water is still expanding and appears to have reached the fishing pond in Maybury State Park over a mile away.

(Sidebar photo and comment-not a part of the geologist report.) Maybury Park with its beautiful fishing lakes and ponds don’t look like this now ever since the “Ogre of Novi” started the dewatering project in the Huron watershed basin, creating environmental loss of fish, birds, wildlife, and simple enjoyment of this beautiful park?
Where is the state of Michigan in the destruction of one of its state parks?
Answer: NOWHERE TO BE FOUND!

Every site is unique, but as a general rule, it takes about as long for the groundwater and surface water to return to pre-pumping levels as it did to lower the water once equilibrium is reached and the area of impact is no longer increasing.  This has not yet occurred and the project is now hopefully going to be finished by the end of summer.  It appears pumping started in June 2019.  So, we are looking at approximately 2 to 3 yrs for the water levels to return to pre-pumping levels. Again, this is only a rough estimate based on a general rule of thumb.  It may take much longer for the ecological communities to be re-established.

There are also sites of known contamination within the area impacted.  We do not know how or if the pumping will impact the contamination.

The Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) granted the permit for the project and is now silent.  This is typical when they make a mistake based on my experience.  I have other examples where EGLE has allowed the destruction of surface water and wetlands and is now ignoring the property owners impacted. 

I have had numerous emails and meetings with Jerrod Sanders, EGLE Water Resources Division Deputy Director, and he has stated EGLE will not use geological information when they evaluate a complaint.  They want to ignore the science most closely related to the problem.  All because an atorney may refute the information.  That is why you need good geologists.  EGLE is very short on these people, as most, like me retired.  I worked for the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) EGLEs previous name for 12 years as a Senior Geologist, prior to retirement.  I started Pangea Environmental, LLC to provide free to low cost consulting to community groups who have been impacted by EGLE failures.

This story is unfolding and, as usual, we will post lots of memes, videos, and high-energy social media ‘weapons’ to launch at the Ogre and his nature-destroying comrades at the City of Novi.

We will be bundling important news from Michigan as it relates to the ongoing Information War being waged on Americans by the Pilgrims Society. Under the headlines are links to articles that explain in detail.

White House: Federal law enforcement officers coming to Detroit

“In recent weeks there has been a radical movement to defend, dismantle and dissolve our police department,” Trump said at a Wednesday White House event, blaming the movement for “a shocking explosion of shootings, killings, murders and heinous crimes of violence.”

Whitmer calls for a federal mask mandate

Parents, if you do not take control of your children’s education, their 2020-21 school year is going to look like a Marxist boot camp with testing, vacinations, and indoctrination. Just look what Detroit Public school students are having to go through:

“Detroit Public School officials have five days, starting Wednesday, to test more than 630 summer school students for COVID-19 as a condition of keeping the program operating, a federal judge ruled Tuesday.

Detroit Public Schools Community District attempted to fight the testing requirement, put in place by a Detroit U.S. District Judge Arthur Tarnow, but were able to expand the testing window from two to five days.

Tarnow held a Zoom hearing with attorneys and members of the media over a lawsuit seeking to shut down in-person summer school inside 23 Detroit Public School Community District buildings.” Source

With employment rates lower now as we transition through to our new American economy, parents have an opportunity to stay at home and educate their children and heal the family unit. Home education is great for parents, too, as they can learn things that they missed when they received their own public school indoctrination.

Secretary of U. S. Indoctrination, Betsy DeVos, a Michigander herself, has an online solution for Ann Arbor students…all packaged and ready to go. State indoctrination in the privacy of your own home! Her Pilgrims Society pals are salivating at the opportunity to sell school systems across America their pricey online curriculum to fill your children’s minds with their anti-American ideologies:

“Cuts of $256 million to K-12 schools, $200 million to colleges and universities, and $97 million in revenue sharing to local governments will all be offset by federal coronavirus funding, under the plan. Also, schools will receive an extra $53 million in hazard pay for teachers and local governments will receive a $53 million boost to cover unexpected costs related to the pandemic.”

Then…no surprise…the witch of the mid-west is rewarded for her anti-police decision and positions herself back in the VP race. This is why we give Whitmer so much attention. She has always been a George Soros top-pick for PRESIDENT. She gets in with Biden…then poof the demented Biden is easily removed.

Gretchen the Horrible will rule all 50 states, including yours. People of Michigan: You are first line defense in taking this feminazi out of office. Friday, July 28 the petition party begins!

Important News! Due to Whitmer’s appeal of the petition approval, signing will be delayed until July 29. See full details on our Social Media posts.
