[ARCHIVED] Storm Updates: Country Club & Facility & Program Closures

Storm Update 225

FINAL UPDATE January 28, 7:00 pm

The Country Club Advisory has been LIFTED. City crews continued working on the second sewer pump last night and earlier today, they repaired it. The pumps were then tested and functioned properly during that time. This afternoon the crews were confident the Parker Pump Station is fully operational.  Your assistance with limiting water drainage was instrumental in allowing the repairs and testing to be made. We appreciate your support and are sending a huge thank you for your ongoing patience during this long week. Residents can now use showers, washing machines, dishwashers, and other activities.  

The CIty has been preparing for next week’s forecasted storms and have equipment in place for the Parker Pump Station, if needed. Additionally, we encourage residents to take advantage of the free sandbags available that crews will be placing in the following locations on Monday and Tuesday. 

  • First/Alameda Blvd
  • Fourth/Alameda Blvd
  • North Beach
  • Cays Park across from Fire Station
  • Second/A Ave (new location)
  • Park Place/Isabella Ave, near Rotary Park Downtown (new location) 
     

Thank you again for your support!

The repairs on the second sewer pump will continue through the night. For now, affected County Club area residents are advised to continue with only flushing and basic hygiene of washing hands. The Community Center is open Saturday and Sunday for showers:  7 am to 7 pm.  Impacted residents can still pick up prepaid laundry cards for Laundry Lounge Laundromat at the Community Center during those same hours. The laundromat is located at 1007 Isabella Avenue (hours 5 am to 10 pm). We are making progress on the repairs and continue to thank residents for their patience and understanding. We are expending every effort to restore service.  

The County of San Diego is opening a local assistance center tomorrow, Sunday, January 28 for flood victims. The assistance center will offer a wide range of services to residents who were heavily impacted by Monday’s storm. It will open at the Spring Valley Library located at 836 Kempton Street.

UPDATE January 27, 12:15 pm

The County is opening a local assistance center on Sunday, January 28 to flood victims. The County’s center will offer a wide range of services to residents who were heavily impacted by Monday’s storm. The torrential downpours made for the fourth wettest day in San Diego County since 1850 and caused millions of dollars of damage to homes, businesses and more. The local assistance center will open at the Spring Valley Library located at 836 Kempton Street. Flood victims can walk in without an appointment from 8 am to 2 pm on Sunday and 10 am to 7 pm Monday through Wednesday.


UPDATE January 26, 8:00 pm

The repair of the second sewer pump is ongoing. Crews and contractors continue to be on site overnight to troubleshoot repairs on the pump. Most of the pump has been rebuilt and crews continue to diagnose and repair additional components. Work will continue around the clock until a final fix is achieved.  For now, affected County Club area residents are advised to continue with the limited water use for flushing and hand washing.   

The Community Center will have extended hours this weekend for showers: 7 am to 7 pm.   Impacted residents can also pick up prepaid laundry cards for Laundry Lounge Laundromat at the Community Center during that same time. The laundromat is located at 1007 Isabella Avenue in Coronado (hours 5 am to 10 pm).  

We understand the great frustration with the uncertainty of the duration of the repair. We continue to thank you for your patience. We are expending every effort to restore service.  The pump repair has been an iterative process and a number of repairs and corrections have been made. 

 The City continues its storm preparations for next week. The sandbags that were distributed at 6 locations today were taken and the City has additional pallets arriving on Monday and on Tuesday. 

 


UPDATE January 26, 4:00 pm

Until the Parker Pump Station repairs are completed and the sewer system is operational, the showers at the Community Center (1845 Strand Way) will be available through the weekend from 7 am to 7 pm. The City is distributing prepaid laundry cards to residents impacted by the ongoing repairs. The pre-paid laundry cards are available at the Community Center for Laundry Lounge, which is located at 1007 Isabella Avenue, in Coronado. Proof of Country Club address is required to pick up the pre-paid laundry cards. 

  • The impacted area encompasses homes in the Country Club area, west of Alameda Blvd to Naval Base, north of 10th St/Alder St and south of 6th Street. Map of area
  • Community Center Hours during for showers and for picking up pre-paid laundry cards is 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.

UPDATE January 26, 11:00 am

Repairs continued overnight on the second sewer pump. The entire pump is being rebuilt and a few additional parts are being obtained this morning.  The first pump continues to operate normally.  As the rebuilt second pump will be almost entirely new, once operational, the amount of time needed for testing is reduced to a few hours before we can lift the drain use advisory. For now, the impacted County Club Area is advised to continue with limited water use for flushing and handwashing. Free showers remain available at the Community Center, 1845 Strand Way to 7 pm.  

Restoring this service has been our highest priority and we thank you for your patience. We recognize there has been a great deal of uncertainty as to timing. We are working our hardest to troubleshoot and get the systems fully operational. Replacement parts for the three stormwater parts were installed and the initial test run was successful. Crews are running additional tests today.   The City is continuously monitoring the next storm system that is predicted to arrive later next week. Citywide, crews are sweeping streets and cleaning storm inlets. We are building contingency plans for stormwater and sewer pumps in the County Club area. 

Dumpsters have been placed around the City for the community’s free use - list of locations and residents impacted by flooding can schedule a bulky waste pick up at their homes by contacting the City's waste hauler, EDCO at 619-287-7555. 

Sandbags are being placed at six locations around the City by noon today.  Two new locations: 2nd and A by Vernetti Field and by Rotary Park Downtown will be stocked in addition to 4th and Alameda, 1st and Alameda, Ocean/Sunset Park and the Cays Park parking lot.  

We will continue to provide updates.

City crews continue to work around the clock to repair the Parker Pump Station. Needed parts were obtained and one of the two sewer pumps is operational. The crews continue to troubleshoot the issues on the second pump. Both pumps are necessary for the full operation of the sewer system. Once both pumps are operational, they must run for approximately 12 hours to reduce the volume of wastewater in the pipes and ensure the system will operate correctly. Once the City has passed this milestone, we will be able to lift the reduced drain use advisory.  Until further notice, the impacted County Club Area is advised to continue with limited water use for flushing and handwashing.  Free showers will remain available at the Community Center, 1845 Strand Way, from 7 am to 7 pm.  

The City recognizes the tremendous inconvenience and uncertainty of the present conditions.  Repairing the system is our top priority and staff are working 24 hours a day to get the pumps up and running. We know this is extremely difficult and thank you for your patience.  

The City is tracking a storm system that could land late next week, and we have preparations underway.  This include back-up stormwater and sewer pumps and we are increasing the number of free sandbags available to residents. The City will share more information with the community about resources tomorrow.
