I have received countless emails from Alpine residents telling me that they DID NOT GET THE BOIL WATER NOTICE CALL from Padre Dam….I too was one of those people who did not get the call. Please forward this message to ANYONE you KNOW in Alpine who does not already receive the ACN alerts and also encourage them to sign up so they can receive them in the future.
Unfortunately I also heard about MANY of our Alpine Businesses who have had to endure so many struggles in thepast years, could not stay open last night due to the water main break an health concerns. Alpine Brewery, Janets, and I am sure MANY MANY MORE were forced to close their doors on a very lucrative FRIDAY NIGHT. This is heartbreaking to me 🙁
I received this email from Carl’s Jr. – “Unfortunately due to this boil out, we had to shut down the Carl’s Jr. For the safety of our guest. We will re-open as soon as the health department gives us the ok. Thanks guest of Alpine for understanding! Thanks.”
Hopefully they can get this taken care of an the water will be safe enough for our restaurants to open tonight 😉

**PADRE DAM WEBSITE BOIL WATER ALERT**
“BOIL YOUR WATER BEFORE USING
Failure to follow this advisory could result in stomach or intestinal illness.
Due to a water main break on Alpine Blvd., the California Department of Public Health in conjunction with the San Diego County Health Department, and Padre Dam Municipal Water District are advising all residents east of Harbison Canyon Road (the Arnold Way pumping zone) to use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking and cooking purposes as a safety precaution.
DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one (1) minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
We will inform you when tests show that water is safe to drink and you no longer need to boil your water. We anticipate resolving the problem within 72 hours.
For more information call:
Water Utility contact: Dave Loudon, System Operations Manager, 619-258-4673, 9300 Fanita Parkway, Santee, CA 92071.

Local Environmental Health Jurisdiction: San Diego County at 858-505-6700.
VERY IMPORTANT!!! Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.”
