Cal-Am Water customers impacted by the water boil advisory, including the Silver Strand area south of Fiddler’s Cove, are advised to follow CDC guidance when the advisory is in effect. Impacted residents should have already received information from Cal-Am Water directly.

Affected customers are advised to use bottled water or boiled tap water for drinking, brushing teeth, and to prepare and cook food. For more information on bathing, cleaning, and pets, visit the CDC Boil Water Advisory webpage.

Back to School Safety Tips
It’s back to school time for Coronado students and the Coronado Police Department suggests these traffic safety tips to review with your children.
  • Always use a crosswalk to cross the street and when available, use a crossing guard.
  • Caution children not to run into the streets or cross in between parked cars.
  • If your child is riding a bike to school, make sure they are wearing a helmet, and they stop at street corners and stop signs.

Adults are reminded to be alert and to drive slowly while near the schools. Together we can make sure students arrive safely and have a great school year! 

Children Invited to Join Trip Down Yellow Brick Road

Advanced registration is required for the How To Class, Auditions, and Oz Production. 

What to Do With Sandbags After the Storm
Now that Tropical Storm Hilary has passed and clear skies have returned, many are asking what to do with the sandbags now.

  • With rainy season approaching, consider keeping your sandbags for reuse.
  • If the used sandbags are not damaged, rake the sand into soil, add it to planters, or use it for flowerbeds as a soil amendment.
  • Place the empty bags in trash cans if you choose not to reuse them. Do not place the empty sandbags in the recycle bin.

For future emergency updates visit San Diego County's and download the SD Emergency app. There you will find more preparedness tips to keep you and your family safe.
Update on Aquatics Competition Pool Temporary Closure 
On August 22, pump technicians disassembled the impeller housing, finding the impeller to have deteriorated rendering it useless.
The shaft was inspected and determined to be in good condition.

The new parts were installed, and the pump was put back into operation today (August 25). An onsite technician stated it will likely take about a week to filter out all of the algae and clear up the water.

Staff will evaluate the condition of the pool water daily and will send out a notification update to the public on Monday, August 28. A notification will be sent out a day before the anticipated reopening.
