The state Assembly Thursday passed and sent to the Senate a bill to begin restoration of the 168-year-old dam in Mission Trails Regional Park that historians say was the first water-control project on the West Coast. The City of San Diego has been under increasing pressure to restore Padre Dam, which the federal government gave to the city in 1964.

The San Diego River has always been a temperamental neighbor. Before construction of the existing flood-control channel that empties into the Pacific Ocean near Mission Bay, the San Diego River generally ran wherever it wanted during the rainy months. Until a flood-control channel was created in the late 1800s, the river often ran through to San Diego Bay. Planning experts now agree that it is unwise to allow heavy development in flood basins.

San Diego County health officials have lifted a quarantine on almost half of the 20 miles of coastline that were closed after a ruptured outfall pipe and raw sewage from Mexico combined to contaminate beaches. The ban was lifted on about nine miles of beaches when Mexican sewage pumps were restarted after being idled since Feb. 7 by heavy rains.

Toxic bacterial counts caused by ongoing sewage spills dipped dramatically Wednesday, prompting San Diego County health authorities to say that they may lift a 20-mile quarantine of area coastline as early as Friday morning. For the first time since the rupture of a massive sewage outfall pipe Feb. 2, bacterial readings fell below the legal limit, except at the tip of the Point Loma Peninsula, said Ruth Covill, a spokeswoman for the San Diego County Department of Health Services.
