Ramona district lifts water alert

San Diego Gas & Electric restored power to the Ramona Municipal Water District’s pump station in Poway by 11 p.m. Thursday, so the district lifted its water curtailment alert, Assistant General Manage David Barnum said.

During the power outage that affected the region Thursday, the district had asked customers to conserve water to essential uses only. Once power was restored, that was no longer necessary.

    Didn't this same situation occur in Oct 2007 during the wildfires– no working generators at the pump station? I had thought that RMWD had addressed this issue, so that Ramona would not be without water during the next emergency. Am I mistaken?

    No Rick. A friend of mine has told me that nothing has been done since 2007. RMWD just sits around and talks about what they can't do. Then again, a 1000 gallon tank of diesel to feed a generator in the middle of a fire isn't the smartest move either. Their best bet is for them to get the Bargar treatment plant up an running so there's a local water supply, but they just sit around talking about how they can't do that either. They're absolutely incompetent.
