According to the figures, public works crews in Orange County collected 404 tons of debris, 13,950 needles, and 5,279 pounds of human waste during a massive overhaul between Jan. 22 and March 3, the Orange County Register reported.
About 700 people had been living in the encampments when the dismantling began in late February, the Register reported. Many have been temporarily placed in motels while municipal workers assess their needs.
Further overhauls will be made to remove 2 to 3 inches of soil along the bike trail, and trees will be trimmed. The trail will also be refurbished, including sealed cracks and the application of slurry seal, the spokesperson said.
And then what?! Orange County doesn’t have a plan, and they are running out of band-aids.
