Ambulance Service:  Issues with #37/44 AMR Ambulance not being available for our SR area last weekend.  At SD City Council meeting,  Bob brought up the issue with lack of AMR service on weekends.  SD City Council advised Bob that a vote was held (unanimous vote by council, 9 of 9) to replace AMR with FAULK ambulance services starting July 1st, 2022.  This would include 67 more ambulances, 120 per day hours extra time and increase in Dispatch services.  During that time, SD Fire Department will also monitor FAULK services for on a monthly bases for 6 months and report to SD City Council on any issues or recommendations.

Pure Water Status Update:
The Water Department staff gave us an update on the Pure Water program.   The project’s ultimate goals have been expanded:  It is expected to provide up to half the water for our area after completion of phase 1 in about 2025, and for the whole city when complete in 2035.   Phase 1 of the project consists of construction and/or improvements to the Morena Pump Station, a pipeline to the North City Water Reclamation Plant, the North City Pure Water Facility, the Metro Biosolids Center, a Pipeline from the Pure Water Facility to Lake Miramar, and the Miramar Water Treatment Plant.   When complete, this will produce about 30,000,000 gallons of purified water per day into Miramar Lake, where it will blend with imported and local water supplies.

Construction of the pipeline between the North City Pure Water Facility and Miramar Lake is schedule to begin in the Summer of this year – 2021.  The pipeline will be installed mostly along Miramar Road.  It will pass under I-15 near Business park Avenue, and continue along Carroll Canyon Road and Hoyt Park Drive, to a Dechlorination Station on Meanley Drive, then under the technology park and Scripps Lake Drive to the Lake.   You can expect construction at night from 9pm to 5am.  Access for residents, businesses, and emergency vehicles will be maintained.  There may be brief scheduled water outages.

There will be substantial construction at Miramar Lake from 7:00am to 4:30pm.  The lake will be closed to boating during construction, but surrounding trails and the loop around the lake will remain open.  On-shore fishing will be permitted around most of the lake.     Even during construction, 25 additional parking spaces will be provided at the Lake, and after completion, we will have a net gain of about 60 parking spaces
