Professor Michael Stenstrom was quoted recently in the L.A. Daily News article titled “Hyperion Sewage Spill Caused By Systems Failure, Human Error, Official Report Says”

From the article:

“It would have been better for (Hyperion) if that had happened,” said Michael K. Stenstrom, the main author of the report, “because that would be more defensible.”… Stenstrom — a UCLA civil and environmental engineering professor who has worked primarily on wastewater treatment plants since 1977 — said he also initially assumed the cause of the spill was outside debris.
