San Diego, CA–The City of San Diego has issued a boil water notice for about 600 residential customers in a portion of Tierrasanta due to low water pressure issues.
All customers impacted by the boil water notice are receiving notices at their homes with detailed information. The streets impacted by the boil water notice include: Alejo Lane, Alejo Place, Alejo Street, Belardo Drive, Callejon Quintana, Camino Playa Catalina, Casals Place Collegio Drive, Corte Playa Catalina, Corte Playa Laguna, Corte Playa Las Brisas, Corte Playa San Juan, Jumilla Street, Lugar Playa Catalina, Mayita Way, Montessa Street, Ocana Place, Oporto Court, Oporto Place, Playa Catalina, Quito Court, Renovo Way, Seda Drive, Terraza Playa Catalina, Terraza Quintana, Tinasa Way, Valdina Drive, Valdina Way, Via Dominique, Via Playa De Cortes, Via Playa Los Santos, and Via Valarta.
The boil water notice has been issued as a precaution in coordination with the California Division of Drinking Water following a large water transmission line that broke Saturday morning near the 5400 block of Governor Drive. It has not been determined if the water is contaminated. Water wagons are available at the 5100 block of Corte Playa Catalina and 4800 block of Seda Drive for residents to access water for drinking, cooking and other needs.
In addition, due to low-pressure issues, customers in several communities in the central part of the city, including Bay Park, Clairemont, Kearny Mesa, Linda Vista, and Tierrasanta, are asked to reduce their water usage to only critical needs, such as cooking and drinking. Non-critical uses, such as irrigating landscaping and washing clothes, should be postponed until the water pressure is restored.
Low water pressure issues stem from the transmission pipeline being taken out of service. City of San Diego Public Utilities Department crews are working on repairs to the broken water pipe. It is expected that water service will be restored to those impacted by the boil water notice by the end of the week. The Public Utilities Department will provide regular updates on its website sandiego.gov/public-utilities/customer-service.
