San Diego, CA -Customers in the South Bay communities of San Ysidro, Otay Mesa, Nestor, and surrounding areas may experience low water pressure or possible water outages on Saturday, June 22, from 8pm through 6am Sunday morning.
The City of San Diego Water Department will be shutting down a portion of a major South Bay water transmission line and rerouting water supplies to these communities to accommodate a contractor?s repair of a broken 33" transmission pipe on the South San Diego Pipeline No. 1.
