Crews completed repairs last week to the Krum Reservoir pipeline that sprung a leak Dec. 6 during heavy rains. The tear in the 12-inch pipeline was about 28 feet under ground; crews replaced about 80 feet of concrete pipe. Capistrano Valley Water District customers served by the reservoir live in the Camino Las Ramblas area. Repair costs are estimated at $45,000, but the city plans to apply for federal reimbursement.

To San Juan Capistrano officials, repair delays that have kept a stretch of Camino Capistrano closed for nearly four years are a major headache. For residents, the road closure caused by El Nino rains in 1998 is a minor inconvenience. But to Ron Shearer and Dave Velton, whose used car lot sits a few hundred yards north of the crumbled roadway, the wait has been an "absolute nightmare."

The City Council on Tuesday approved a $27.7-million master plan for improvements to city water systems. The plan--a first for the city, where some water systems date from 1955--will be funded by an increase in water rates over the next 22 years. Residents currently pay about $33 per month; by comparison, San Clemente residents pay about $42 for about the same amount of water. In 2020, the average San Juan Capistrano resident would pay about $39 per month. Much of the $27.

The Army Corps of Engineers is working to repair the lining on the sides of San Juan Creek. Sections of the lining collapsed during El Nino storms two years ago. The stream never flooded, but residents were evacuated as a precaution. The lining, originally built in the 1960s, is thin and not long enough to reach the bottom of the creek, said City Manager George Scarborough. During the storms, the bottom of the creek eroded and became deeper until it undermined the lining, he said.

Eager to ease the flow of trash into overflowing landfills and meet a looming state limit on waste disposal, three South County cities are gearing up to begin curbside recycling programs in their communities. Flanked by brand-new recycling trucks, the mayors of San Juan Capistrano, San Clemente and Dana Point will unfurl plans for the recycling effort during a ceremony at San Juan Capistrano City Hall today at 2 p.m.

Trash collection bills will go up about $1 per household once curbside recycling starts in 1,000 test homes this month, city officials estimate. The actual increase will be 10.7% for each household and business to cover the estimated $147,210 cost for testing curbside recycling for one year, said Assistant City Manager George Scarborough. At the end of one year, the actual costs will be audited and reassessed by the City Council.

With the rainy season approaching, the City Council has authorized its staff to proceed with emergency repairs at San Juan Creek, despite having no guarantee that the Federal Emergency Management Agency will reimburse the city for the cost of the project. Work on dredging the middle of the creek to prevent it from further eroding the bank was being done Thursday, said William Huber, San Juan Capistrano's director of engineering and building.

The City Council voted unanimously this week to begin a six-month experimental recycling program at about 1,000 homes. The $2,480 monthly cost will be shared by every home and business in the city. A staff report on that cost-sharing plan will be presented to the City Council on Sept. 18, Assistant City Manager George Scarborough said. A public hearing will be held at that time.

Got weeds? City officials soon will start cracking down on properties with overgrown weeds as part of its 1998 Weed Abatement Program from May 15 to June 30. In January, the city mailed about 600 letters to residents, alerting them to potential weed problems, said Amy Amirani, director of public works. Residents have the choice of removing the weeds themselves, hiring an outside contractor or allowing the city to remove them.
