WHEREAS to document the existing levels of reduction compared to no controls and compared to maximum possible efforts a study of this nature is required as the device being tested was designed by City Staff; and

 

WHEREAS; MAMSWAPP and Clean Lakes Alliance and YaharaWins have funds dedicated to support the leaf collection study;
