Water service in Tijuana in Rosarito will be shut off for more than 12 hours on Wednesday, Nov. 7, to allow maintenance work on sluicegates at El Carrizo dam, officials said Tuesday. The shutoff is to begin at 6 a.m. and water may start flowing in the pipes again after 6 p.m.
Water service may be restored to Rosarito until the next day, officials said.
Frontera said it will be the first work on the sluicegates since the dam was built in 1976-1978.
The Carrizo reservoir is the terminus for the Colorado River-Tijuana Aqueduct, although when possible, Carrizo water is diverted to the Rodriguez reservoir in eastern Tijuana. Story, Frontera (PDF).
