Mayor’s Challenge: Let’s make it 3 in a row. |
The Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation is a friendly competition between cities across the US to see who can be the most “waterwise.” Mayors and civic leaders nationwide challenge their residents during the month of April to conserve water, energy, and other natural resources on behalf of their city. Residents show their commitment by completing an online Water Pledge. Cities with the highest percentage of residents taking the pledge win.
Help Laguna Beach secure its third year win as the “Most Waterwise City in the Nation!” Take the free online pledge between April 1- 30 at www.mywaterpledge.com. Everyone in your household with an email address can take the pledge and can be entered into a drawing to win prizes including a Toyota Prius Plug-in. Take the pledge today!
The Water Quality Department has placed the city's urban water diversion units back online for the summer season. The city maintains 22 urban water diversion units primarily along the coastline. These diversion units serve to redirect over irrigation and other non-stormwater, collected in the storm drain, to the sewer system. These structures function to divert pollutants such as brake dust, oil, fertilizers from landscaping, pesticides, and other debris to the sewer system. Over the course of a year, an average of about 8 tons of debris and pollutants are pulled out of the diversion structures and hauled away for disposal.|
The City’s recent street slurry seal project was completed three months ago and has been evaluated by a pavement expert in response to some complaints about the quality of the work. During the course of the project the City had the pavement specialist engineering firm of LaBelle Marvin sample the slurry during and after the application. LaBelle Marvin issued its final report this week indicating that the quality of the product met the standard of the industry and the project specifications. There are some differences of color on parts of El Toro road related to variations in the slurry seal mixtures that were still within specifications. Slurry seal applications are done every seven to ten years to extend the life of the pavement. A slurry seal application does not produce as even texture and color as a pavement overlay, but cost one tenth as much while extending the pavement life many years. Most texture and color variations are evened out after a year of wear and weather.|
