SORBA Trail Crew cleared area where tree landed on the drain pipe. it was good to cover the hole with the large flat rock but not good to fill the pipe with rocks that will blockup the drainage. The flat rock, traffic cone and reflector are still there until we deal with closing and covering the pipe better. We also cleared the large fallen tree between sinks intersections. Logged 4 x 1 hr
