San Pedro | Paseo del Mar Landslide In The News

From the Palisades Residents Association :

Here are highlights from two articles in the news. Click on the links to read the full articles.
From the LA Times: Work Crews Hustle as San Pedro bluff slides slowly into the sea
The highway and sidewalk have sunk more than a foot, opening deep crevices in the asphalt that cut a jagged diagonal line across the two-lane roadway. A wooden fence that once ran a straight line along the road now bends abruptly toward the ocean, a change that happened in just days
In the last week, the movement has accelerated to about half an inch per day.
No buildings are at risk of falling into the ocean.
Officials don’t know how much farther the ground is going to shift, but they are bracing for the possibility that chunks of the bluff could shear off and slide toward the sea.
Contractors are working seven days a week, 10 hours a day, manning loaders and excavators that are carving new trenches to reroute two major storm drain pipes away from the moving earth. The project could take four more weeks, but the hope is to finish before any heavy rains.
In the Daily Breeze: Crews begin relocating power poles in sinkhole area to White Point
The work to relocate the [power] poles is expected to take two to three weeks.
The move is designed to maintain electrical reliability as well as to ensure continuous operation of a county sewage pump station at Paseo del Mar and Western Avenue.

Utility Poles In White Point Nature Preserve | San Pedro

Paseo del Mar Mark SpectorInstallation of utility poles inside the White Point Nature Preserve began today. L.A. Department of Water & Power (LADWP) crews started this morning and have been instructed to try and keep the noise level down as much as possible.
The plan is to get all the poles installed on/near the northern footpath first so the K-rail will be removed to gain access. After that is done, the crews will be moving the poles that are lying on the ground into the Nature Preserve. Installing these poles should take 4 to 7 days of work. After this is complete, the LADWP will focus on the utility poles going by the Nature Preserve building.

San Pedro | Sinkhole Closes Paseo del Mar

Paseo del Mar Mark SpectorPaseo del Mar may be closed between Western Avenue and Weymouth for quite a while as city engineers try to find the cause of the sinkhole that started this summer.
From the Daily Breeze:
“We’ve been monitoring it since early July,” said Lawrence Cuaresma, district engineer with the Los Angeles Public Works Department.
On Monday, officials determined a sinkhole did exist.
Underneath the 2-by-3-foot, bowl-like depression in the street, Cuaresma said, a hole “expands outward” below the roadway. The area is just west of Weymouth Avenue near Fromhold Field.
Both sides of the street in the section generally between Weymouth and Western avenues will be closed pending further investigation and repairs.
“We’re in the investigating mode,” Cuaresma said.
The cause has not been determined, he said. But there could be multiple potential sources of the problem, as there are two storm drains, a sewer line and a water line that run beneath the road that takes traffic along the southern ocean cliffs between San Pedro and the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
The water line has been turned off, he said, with area water being routed through other lines.
Underground cameras and other equipment will be used to try to pinpoint the problem, he said.

New Home Owners Problems & Soluctions

So you got that dream home you have been trying to buy for years, you get all moved in and the boxes are unpacked, the kids have started their new schools and everything seem to be going fine. Of course you have a list of a few things you would like to change in your new home but money is tight and you start a list of “To Do’s” so as your savings accounts start to recover you will know right where to start.

But as you will find out as a home owner, something will breakdown and need repairing. This will always happen at the worst time, when you just don’t have time to deal with the problem or when your funds are still low and the last thing you need is a BIG repair bill. Well with any luck your Realtor made sure before you closed escrow a “Home Warranty” was bought for your first 12 months of ownership. This warranty will cover most of your standard systems in your home like Heating, Plumbing, Garbage Disposal, Oven/Range/Cook-top, Electrical Systems etc. Now I typically use Suzy Pelshaw with Fidelity National Home Warranty and with her company the home owner only pays a $55 service fee and they will come out and do the repair. But their are many companies out there.

Suzy and I have put together a nice booklet about some basic Problems And Solutions that will help homeowners with problems like the Refrigerator isn’t working – the Dishwasher will not turn on – the Garbage Disposal Drains Slowly – my Forced Air Heater will not turn on…
