| Filed under

After a half-dozen meetings over four months, the Community Services District board of directors has approved a plan for millions of dollars in options to deal with wastewater as the community grows.

CSD policy requires developers to pay their own way, but the realities of the highly regulated world of wastewater management mean everyone has a monetary stake in the decisions that are made now and 10 years from now. Read more » about CSD maps a plan to handle wastewater and development

Heavy equipment finds its way home -- unharmed

| Filed under

It may not have crept in on little cat feet, but the quiet reappearance of a 40-foot-long Caterpillar tractor-scraper at the Murieta Equine Center last week was certainly sudden and unexpected.

When the $150,000 piece of heavy equipment was stolen from a construction project at the complex July 26, Mike Buchanan, owner of the Buchanan Company in Elk Grove, feared it would turn up destroyed, if it turned up at all.

Instead, the Caterpillar 623B was undamaged when it showed up early Tuesday morning and its meter showed only an hour’s use. Buchanan credits the outcome to the fact that he acted on information he received after the theft indicating he might have been confused with another contractor, and the equipment may have been taken as payback in a dispute.

Pump shutdown causes brief water pressure drop in North

| Filed under

A pump shutdown at the Rio Oso water facility dropped water pressure in Units 3 and 4 of Murieta North, leaving some residents without water for a brief period Saturday morning. The pumps shut off after the water level in the 1.2-million-gallon Rio Oso tank fell to 10 feet, triggering a low-water alarm at about 9:30 a.m., according to Paul Siebensohn, Community Services District acting director of field services.

Siebensohn said CSD operation and utility crews restarted the pumps by 9:45 a.m. The pressurized system supplies about 30 percent of the community's potable water.

Siebensohn said a reduction in the water supply to the tank combined with high early morning water demand caused the problem. Read more » about Pump shutdown causes brief water pressure drop in North
