We the Residents of Upland, California, demand that the City of Upland, implement a Sewer Roach Control & Prevention Plan immediately! BECAUSE DUSTING MANHOLE COVERS WHERE INSECT ACTIVITY IS OBSERVED IS RIDICULOUS, UNACCEPTABLE, A JOKE & AN INSULT!
The Citizens Committee for Safe Solutions emailed the City of Upland on 9/14/17 and proposed that the City of Upland, implement the highly effective and safe solution that the City of Albuquerque uses biannually, to treat its 33,000 city manholes, to prevent sewer cockroach infestations. https://uplandradiation.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/roach-control-plan.pdf
It requires one pound of boric acid, sprayed into each manhole through a hole in the cover, which does not require lifting the manhole covers. Boric Acid is non-toxic to humans and animals but is highly effective in killing cockroaches and the details can been seen here; http://www.abcwua.org/Cockroach_Control.aspx
Upland Residents should no longer be allowed to live in these horrendous conditions, with 1,000,000’s of Public Health Hazards coming from the city sewer system and into countless Upland homes and businesses, through the drain lines, in said homes and business!
The City of Upland has known of this problem since at least 2015, per the Public Records, the City of Upland surrendered here; https://uplandradiation.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/roach-records-redacted.pdf & https://uplandradiation.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/roach-redacted-2.pdf
And there are SEWER Roach Complaints on Upland’s Nextdoor Community Website, Multiple Upland Facebook Group Pages and at The Upland Roach Report here; https://uplandradiation.wordpress.com/redroachreport/
It is TOTALLY unacceptable that the City of Upland, continues to ignore this problem and their residents for another day! Therefore, we the undersigned, demand our city finally take immediate action and adopt an appropriate Sewer Roach Control Plan & Prevention immediately, to deal with their massive citywide sewer roach infestation, which is affecting the Residents in Upland, living on the list of affected streets, seen here; https://uplandradiation.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/red-roach-report-updates.pdf
WE, THE UNDERSIGNED & RESIDENTS OF UPLAND, DEMAND THAT OUR CITY TELL ITS CITIZENS, WHAT SEWER ROACH CONTROL & PREVENTION PLAN, THAT OUR PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT, WILL BE IMPLEMENTING IMMEDIATELY TO DEAL WITH THIS PUBLIC HEALTH HAZARD!
