After an investigation sparked by a whistle-blower, the Los Alisos Water District has been warned by the state to improve its reporting of sewage spills, use of trained workers and maintenance of flow meters. The water district, which serves Lake Forest, has presented a plan to the California Regional Water Quality Control Board on how it will accurately report sewage spills, allow only qualified personnel to oversee treatment plants and properly calibrate all water flow meters.

A mechanical failure caused about 500 gallons of raw sewage to be dumped into Aliso Creek on Tuesday. The breakdown occurred at 8:20 a.m. during a routine power outage to test the South Coast Water District's generator equipment. When emergency power wasn't supplied to a waste water station, the untreated sewage overflowed into Aliso Creek, which feeds into the ocean at South Laguna Beach, according to officials.

An imported-water pipeline serving 350,000 customers between Yorba Linda and Mission Viejo has been shut down for construction on a $60-million expansion project, water officials said. Water service to customers in nine affected water districts in east and south Orange County was not interrupted, but the public is being asked to halt outdoor watering to help ease the burden on stored water supplies, said Stan Sprague, general manager of the Municipal Water District of Orange County.

In a referendum on the leadership of the Santa Margarita Water District and its culpability in an embarrassing scandal, a record number of reform-minded candidates are looking to take over four seats on a board whose membership has been unchallenged since 1987. It has long been a struggle to get anyone to run for a board that deals in arcane topics such as transmission lines, ground water and improvement districts.

Measure Q, La Palma's proposed 4% utility tax intended to raise money for the general fund and police and recreation departments, appeared to be going down to defeat by a 3-1 margin, according to unofficial results in Tuesday's election. La Palma officials had warned that if taxpayers rejected the measure, city services would be reduced. Measure Q's supporters said that if the utility surtax was defeated, 10% of the city's 59 employees would have to be laid off.

Calling it the "South Africa" of water districts, Assemblyman Mickey Conroy (R-Orange) said Friday that he will introduce emergency legislation to restructure voters' rights within the troubled Santa Margarita Water District. The water district is currently run by directors who are not elected on a "one-man, one-vote" rule. Instead, under rules governing certain types of water districts, the Santa Margarita district allows landowners one vote for every dollar of assessed land.
