The Hollywood Reservoir will be closed for treatment until 6:30 a.m. Saturday, a Department of Water and Power official said Monday. As a preventive measure before the hot summer weather, the 1.3-billion-gallon reservoir will be injected with chlorine to control algae growth that typically occurs when the temperature rises. DWP officials began restricting public access at 6:30 p.m. Monday because workers will be setting up portable equipment on the perimeter road.

Pop and classical singer Josh Groban has listed his gated house in Malibu at $5.475 million. The crooner put the Tuscan-inspired home up for lease a few years ago at $23,000 a month after it failed to sell at $6.1 million. Perhaps this time around it will hit all the right notes with a buyer. A long brick driveway leads to the multi-level house, which was built in 1976 and sits on 1.8 acres. The mountain-view property includes the main house, a guesthouse, a swimming pool and spa with a waterfall, a lighted tennis court and an outdoor fireplace.

To understand how ugly the battle over the Hollywood sign has become, just look at the fliers that have been popping up recently in the hillside neighborhoods below the landmark. In a call to arms, the fliers warn of the tourists who swarm in "like locusts from all across the world" and suggest the city establish "armed checkpoints. " The anonymous author then makes a radical proposal: Dismantle the Hollywood sign. It's a joke, of course. But for both residents and city officials, it's evidence that the long-running debate about sightseer traffic around the Hollywood sign is reaching a tipping point.

To the delight of joggers, walkers and cyclists, the pristine Hollywood Reservoir reopened this week after being closed to visitors as a precaution against terrorism in the wake of the Persian Gulf War. "It feels great to be back here," puffed Amy Ness, a film industry location manager, as she ran around the 3 1/4-mile perimeter of the reservoir in the Hollywood Hills. "It's like an old friend. I'm glad to have it back."

City Councilman Michael Woo did an about-face Wednesday, saying he will oppose a developer's proposal to build 64 multimillion-dollar mansions overlooking the Hollywood Reservoir. Woo's turnaround threatens the project, which the Jefferson Development Corp. has been planning to build on a 172-acre parcel of land on one of the last remaining unspoiled major ridges in the Hollywood Hills. Woo said he no longer trusted Jefferson to build an environmentally sensitive project.

On the steep hillsides, fiery partisans nurse their grudges and keep their eyes peeled for the enemy. They pore over maps and hoard scraps of intelligence. Mixed in among the majority population, small communities cling to dissident views. Refugees seek new homes. Entreaties go out to the powers that be, including Madonna. Not the Madonna, just Madonna. Yugoslavia? No. This struggle is unfolding in the hills surrounding the Hollywood Reservoir.

As an $80-million project to change the Upper and Lower Hollywood reservoirs nears completion, work is now proceeding out of public view and away from public recreation. Joggers and hikers have been banned from the popular 3.1-mile route around the scenic bodies of water in the Hollywood Hills because of security measures imposed at Los Angeles Department of Water and Power facilities since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
