Next week, the concept of Neighborhood Watch will take on a whole new meaning here. In an upscale neighborhood that includes the homes of actress Bette Midler and football great O.J. Simpson, the city will begin sewer repairs and is asking residents to avoid taking showers, flushing toilets or using water from about 9 a.m. to midnight. For their convenience, the city will provide his-and-hers portable toilets--in the street.

Next week, the concept of Neighborhood Watch will take on a new meaning in Laguna Beach. In an upscale neighborhood that includes the homes of actress Bette Midler and former football star O.J.

For their convenience, the city will provide his and her portable toilets--in the street.

The City Council voted this week to fund a review of erosion protection plans for grading work for an access road to the North Laguna Reservoir project. The grading for the access road to the 5-million-gallon emergency supply reservoir has yet to be completed and neighboring residents fear that winter rains will result in landslide conditions. However, Laguna Beach Water District officials have put the work on hold until spring.

The reopening of Aliso Beach to swimmers is at least three weeks away, according to a report released last week. That's how long it may take divers to install temporary repairs inside a leaky sewer outfall pipe, the report from the Aliso Water Management Agency indicated. In the meantime, 100,000 gallons of treated sewage will continue to leak offshore, the report said. The beach was closed after the leaks were discovered on Feb.

With the rainy season approaching, the city has begun a three-month project to steady a faltering Rimrock Canyon hillside where a landslide destroyed two homes last spring. Officials had hoped to begin the $800,000 job sooner but were waiting for approval from affected residents, said Terry Brandt, director of municipal services. Once they were confident that the approvals would be given, he said, the grading and other work began.

With the rainy season creeping closer, the City Council has placed plans to stabilize a hillside on a "fast track," after a landslide there last spring destroyed two homes and threatened others. The council voted unanimously Tuesday night to launch the $800,000 project, which still needs the approval of about seven Rimrock Canyon property owners. The hillside beneath Dunning Drive began slipping March 25, forcing the evacuation of two families.

The city's decision to use goats to clear hillside brush has prompted smirks in the past, but the munching herds have become popular with residents, so much so that many who live near open areas are clamoring for the herds to get busy in their neighborhoods. "We would like to see the goats in our canyon this year," Bluebird Canyon resident Patricia Turnier told the City Council this week. Turnier said she has been watching for the herd since spring.

Laguna Beach residents can trade their used Christmas trees for wood chips as part of a first-ever tree recycling program sponsored by the city. Trees can be taken to the city employees' parking lot on Laguna Canyon Road between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday as part of the pilot program held in conjunction with other city recycling efforts, Municipal Services Director Terry Brandt said Thursday. The city's Fire Department and firefighter reserves will staff the tree drop-off site.
