Blogworthy Matters

A couple weeks ago we blogged on a planned electric service interruption taking place in the area surrounding the Marina. PG&E, however, did NOT end up conducting their maintenance work during that time and have rescheduled that work to instead be done tomorrow morning, between 5:00am - 6:00am. The affected areas will still be Sierra Pt. Pkwy, Marina Blvd., and Shoreline Ct. PG&E and the City apologize for this inconvenience.

And a helpful tidbit: if ever you want to check the status of an electric outage, you may phone PG&E's outage hotline at: 1-800-743-5000. Thank you again for your patience and cooperation!

More news related to Sierra Point Pkwy. Public Works dept. got a call this afternoon from the Fire Dept. asking their assistance concerning a small oil spill that occurred on Sierra Point Pkwy. When they arrived, it appeared that a small amount of oil had made its way into the Lagoon, entering by way of a catch basin (which a vee ditch on Sierra Point Pkwy is connected to). Fortunately, the affected area in the Lagoon was small enough for oil booms to be quickly placed around the site. Storms drains were also soon blocked off to prevent any oil from flowing to the Bay. An environmental contractor is on site doing the last of the clean-up, along with several from the City's Public Works crew.
