According to some courthouse news, Los Angeles County didn't take into consideration that the subway plans cross over a fault line underneath e Beverly Hills High School.
The city of Beverly Hills is seeking an injunction against the Westside Subway Extension Project in a lawsuit against the LA County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
It was stated in the lawsuit that, "The high school's environmental setting is unique in that its grounds contain more than a dozen actively producing oil wells, as well as a number of former oil well sites". The project has been in the works for over 30 years.
My neighbor and I were just talking the other day about how Beverly Hills was originally bought by Hammel and Denker for oil refining( Amalgamated Oil Company). When the oil wells came up dry, the landowners scrambled to recoup their losses by turning it into a residential community...originally called Morroco Junction.
So I digress. If a Southern Gentleman, from Charlotte, knows this much about the history of Beverly Hills. How was a fault line and the subterranean oil well overlooked?
So up from the ground could come a bubbling crude?
This Beverly Hill Billy wants your opinions...
