The city will begin a five-year, $4.6-million sewer pipe repair program in December, funded by federal, state and city governments. About 75% of the city's sewer pipes were damaged in the Northridge quake, said construction manager Jason Fell. Because of the resulting cracks and misalignments, the potential for backup and overflow is much greater. The first phase, to be completed in June, includes strengthening of 60,000 feet of pipes, mostly in downtown.

Los Angeles County supervisors cleared the way Tuesday for Malibu to become a city March 28, ending an eight-month delay during which they tried in vain to start work on a sewer system in the seaside community. The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the last piece of legislative paperwork needed for Malibu to become the county's 87th city and officially loosened its grip on plans to build the controversial $43-million sewer project.

Malibu community leaders are furious at Pepperdine University officials for helping to engineer the defeat of a Senate bill that would have blocked Los Angeles County from building a sewer in the beachside town before residents vote on incorporation. Cityhood advocates and aides of Sen. Gary K.
