Adding to its busy construction schedule, South Gate is gearing up to build two 1.8-million-gallon reservoirs atop an abandoned parking lot. The project is expected to begin early next year and is estimated to cost $3.4 million, nearly all of which will be paid through federal and county funds. Before building can begin, an empty lot off Tweedy Boulevard in the western portion of the city needs environmental mitigation work.

Parts of the city's 60-year-old sewer system are so deteriorated that a video crew hired to probe the tunnels has fallen months behind schedule, city officials said Thursday. A report on how to repair the system--several portions of which have collapsed in recent years--was due last month, but city spokeswoman Nancy Blaine said it may not be available until October.

South Gate's eighth sewer collapse in two years has heightened the urgency of a forthcoming report on how to fix the problem, city officials said Monday. As city staff members scrambled to finish the long-awaited report that is due to the City Council next month, a tow truck began sinking into a section of Pennsylvania Street on June 14 just north of Century Boulevard. The section had been scheduled for repair.

Though their solution remains the same, engineers studying South Gate's crumbling sewer system warn that recent sinkholes and sewage backups could make repairs far more urgent than they expected just a year ago. During five meetings with residents over the next month, city staff members hope to build support for a $10-million municipal bond to pay for repairs to about a third of the 90-mile system.

South Gate is trying to become the first Southland city in more than 50 years to buy out facilities of the Southern California Edison Co. and form its own publicly owned electric utility company. The city has informed Edison that it intends to take over operations by Jan. 1, 1988. Edison, whose territory covers about 50,000 square miles from Central California to Palm Springs and whose annual income is about $5.5 billion, compared to South Gate's budget of about $14.5 million, opposes the move.

The city embarked last week on the first phase of a major street repair program that will fix or replace all 128 miles of the city's streets within 10 years. The $17-million repair program was developed after a yearlong study analyzed the condition of every block of city roads and recommended repairs. The first stage, which began Thursday, is a $700,000 project paid for through state gasoline tax funds that will fix 25% of the city's roads in four weeks.

The Huntington Park City Council has gone on record against construction of a 171-mile oil pipeline linking Santa Barbara County to refineries in El Segundo and Wilmington because of economic and environmental concerns. The South Gate City Council is expected to consider similar action this month. "There are people like me that are opposed to the pipeline because of environmental concerns," said Huntington Park Mayor Ric V. Loya.

The city is building a 4-million gallon underground reservoir at South Gate Park to store water from four wells that were closed in 1985 because of contamination by the solvent PCE, or perchloroethylene. Officials said the water, which will be added to the city's supply and used in homes, will be safe for consumption because of a treatment system that will remove virtually all of the contaminant. The project is to be completed by April, 1994.
