Get up to speed on what’s going on in Coronado with this video preview of the latest edition of the Coronado City Manager’s Weekly Update, as well as a few of the updates below. Get detailed information on the City’s website.

  • Beach Closure/Debris Washing Ashore: The ocean shoreline from the border to the north end of Coronado has been closed due to runoff from the Tijuana River. A spill of nearly 150 million gallons of sewage was reported to have spilled into the Tijuana River over a period of several weeks. The river drains into the Pacific Ocean just north of the border. Avoid water contact until sampling confirms the area is safe to re-enter. The recent storm brought debris to the City’s beach, including tires, metal and trash. Public Services crews worked to clear the debris only to find more the next day. Crews will continue to clean until the beach remains clean.

Beach Clean-up

  • Glorietta Sewer Main Inspection: An inspection was completed this week of the Glorietta Sewer Force Main under the 200 block of B Avenue. The line transports effluent from the Glorietta Bay collection point to the Transbay Pump Station. Odors in the area indicate a leak. Video footage of the inside of the pipe is being reviewed to determine the condition of the pipe and required repairs. As soon as the analysis is complete, a repair method will be immediately selected and repairs scheduled. The work is a high priority.

Sewer Main

  • San Diego Waterfront Park Event:  A large music festival will be held at the County of San Diego’s Waterfront Park, on Harbor Drive in downtown San Diego, this Saturday and Sunday, March 4-5 from noon to 11 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 10 p.m. on Sunday. Organizers expect 15,000 people. Questions can be directed to the County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation at (619) 232-7275.
