Please Excuse Our Dust

California American Water is replacing infrastructure on Palm Avenue to resolve the ongoing water main breaks that have caused several interruptions in water service to residents in the past few months. Due to the deterioration of the pipeline infrastructure, California American Water decided to immediately move forward with construction to better serve their customers. The overall project is currently scheduled for completion in February 2020 and will primarily impact segments of SR-75 from 13th Street to Delaware and Old Palm Avenue from Delaware to 4th Street. Roadway lane closures are generally scheduled during business hours, though some night work will also occur. For updated traffic alerts detailing scheduled road closures and detours related to this project, please check the city website. For additional information related to the project, California American Water has provided the following project personnel contact information: California American Water, 619-446-5703; Mark Duchesne, Construction Manager, 916-342-9801; Jacob Quick, Senior Project Engineer, 805-454-0907; Brian Barreto, External Affairs, 626-388-7484.

Lighting Up the Night

San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) street light design staff and installation crews are scheduled to complete another batch of street light installations in Imperial Beach this winter. Once in place, this latest group of 25 new lights, when combined with previous lighting installation efforts, will have resulted in a total of 149 new street lights installed in Imperial Beach since 2017.

These new lights have been installed across a wide swath of Imperial Beach, from the coast to 15th Street. 

Imperial Beach Public Works staff coordinates these lighting efforts with SDG&E, as well as working with SDG&E maintenance crews on the repair of existing lighting. To contact the City about the installation of new light on your street or repair of an existing light, please contact the Public Works Department by email at or by phone at 619-423-8311. City staff will then investigate and provide you with additional information regarding adding the site to SDG&E’s next batch of new light installations or repair list.

    There are many tests such as smoke test vacuum leaks which must be done from time to time. The point is that everyone needs to check their installations, their products to see if they are functional and properly used.
