BOIL WATER NOTICE FOR RINCON WATER CUSTOMERS  

08/15/14 Categories: City of Escondido

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Julia Escamilla, 760-745-5522

Routine Sampling in Rincon del Diablo Municipal Water District’s ID 1, Pressure Zone 3, indicated a presence of Coliform Bacteria. Although Coliform Bacteria arenaturally present in the environment, its presence is also used as an indicator that other, potentially-harmful, bacteria may be present. Pending further testing, Rincon del Diablo Municipal Water District is advising residents to use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking and cooking purposes as a safety precaution.

Rincon del Diablo Municipal Water District has two sources of water that is delivered to customer according to specific geographic boundaries.  This Boil Water Notice is specific to Rincon customers with account numbers starting with:  01 through 48, 94, 96, and 97.

DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for five (5) minutes, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking and food preparation until further notice. This is the preferred method to assure that the water is safe to drink.

Alternative methods of disinfection for residents that who do not have access to gas or electricity:

  • Use fresh, unscented, liquid household bleach (Clorox, Purex, etc.).  To do so, add 8 drops (or 1/8 teaspoon) of bleach per gallon of clear water or 16 drops (or 1/4 teaspoon) per gallon of cloudy water, mix thoroughly, and allow it to stand for 30 minutes before using.  A chlorine-like taste and odor will result from this disinfection procedure and is an indication that adequate disinfection has taken place. (Clorox, Purex, etc.)
  • Water disinfection tablets may also be used by following the manufacturer’s instructions.

 Failure to follow this advisory could result in stomach or intestinal illness.

Rincon del Diablo Municipal Water District will inform you when tests show that water is safe to drink and you no longer need to boil your water. The minimum duration is expected to be no less than forty eight hours.

SDG&E To Remove Hazardous Palm Trees 

07/23/14 Categories: City of Escondido

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Rafael Rivera, 760-839-4802

SDG&E prunes and removes incompatible trees near electric conductors for public safety, compliance with state law, and to provide reliable electric service. Beginning July 28, 2014,  nineteen Mexican Fan Palms located along the east side of South Citrus Avenue, between Bear Valley Parkway and Reed Road, as well as 14 located in the vicinity of Aster Street and Crofton Lane, will be removed because they have become tall enough to cause a safety issue for the electric conductors in the immediate area. Debris, such as seed pods and dead fronds, etc., naturally release from the top part of these trees throughout the year. During storms and wind events, this debris can easily be blown loose from the tree and carried by the winds into the electric conductors and equipment, or, even worse, the whole tree could fall into the conductors. SDG&E prunes these trees regularly but their threat to public safety cannot be fully mitigated unless they are completely removed.

 

SDG&E will provide replacement trees to the city.
