The Los Angeles County Sanitation District and its 'Clearwater Program' needs to have a large shaft sunk for the purposes of placing tunnel-drilling equipment for a new outflow tunnel and for the removal of dirt and to provide access to the new tunnel.
"Let's Pick "6"" means that we all should welcome the mining-site and shaft to Identified Potential Shaft Site Number 6, at the Port of L.A., (LAXT) site, on Terminal Island.
Number "6" is NOT in a residential area.
Number "6" has railroad track adjacent to it, allowing for more equipment and dirt to be transported with less cost and have less pollutants.
Number "6" is 'freeway friendly' with not one, but two freeways with easy access over any of three bridges, allowing for no large dirt-haulers to have to clog city streets.
Number "6" allows for greater security to be established and maintained for the site.
Number "6" will NOT use up any valuable parkland, environmentally fragile areas, or cultural and other recreational areas.
Number "6" may allow the most level tunnel to be dug.

You can find more information about the Clearwater Program at the Sanitation District's Web site for the program at: http://www.clearwaterprogram.org/clearwater/.
Folks are trying to find support from all five Neighborhood Councils in the Harbor area, every single homeowners' groups, business groups, and every individual living in the San Pedro, Harbor City, Wilmington, and eastern Rancho Palos Verdes.
Let's all join together and welcome the new tunnel which is very necessary and make sure that the site where the shaft is sunk, the equipment is utilized at ground level, and the dirt is hauled away from is Number "6", at the former LAXT site on Terminal Island.
