A large sinkhole in the westbound lanes of Redlands Boulevard west of California Street will affect both east and westbound traffic on Redlands Boulevard while City staff evaluate the structural integrity of the infrastructure and how to repair the damage.

The sinkhole, approximately 10 to 15 feet wide and up to 20 feet deep was reported to City staff early Monday afternoon, Aug. 4. No one was injured.

Westbound traffic on Redlands Boulevard will be diverted to northbound California Street, while eastbound Redlands Boulevard traffic will be diverted south on California Street for an undetermined period until repairs are made.

A spill at the Redlands Water Treatment plant on Nevada Street, caused by a power outage combined with a heavy deluge of storm water, released up to 600,000 gallons of partially treated raw sewage into the rain-swollen Santa Ana River Sunday evening.

A combination of a Southern California Edison power outage in the area and heavy rainfall and storm water flowing from above the treatment plant adding water into treatment reservoirs caused the reservoirs to overflow for a little more than two hours Sunday, Aug. 3, between 9 and 11:30 p.m.

Officers, firefighters and personnel from the Redlands Police, Fire and Quality of Life departments and Emergency Operations Manager responded to a number of minor issues during a brief downpour Sunday, Aug. 3.

Heavy rain fell for about 45 minutes beginning at about 6:15 p.m. Sunday.  The City’s Emergency Operations Center was activated at a Level 1 (the lowest level) for two hours, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Reported issues included:

As the persistent statewide drought reaches record-setting levels through much of California, the State Water Resources Control Board enacted restrictions on water use effective July 28.

To comply with these restrictions, which are in effect for 270 days, the City of Redlands has implemented its Stage 2 water conservation measures.  Stage 2 measures require City water customers to limit water usage and limits the days and times customers may irrigate their landscaping. The restrictions limit potable water customers with even numbered addresses to irrigating only on even numbered calendar days and potable water customers with odd numbered addresses to irrigating only on odd numbered calendar days.  If these restrictions do not meet the needs of reducing the City’s production below 2013 production levels, as required by the new state regulations, the City will adopt more stringent conservation methods until the necessary conservation is obtained.

The Redlands Police Department Special Operations Bureau recently expanded its use of social media to help identify wanted suspects and persons of interest, using the department’s Facebook page and Twitter account to post fliers of wanted suspects and persons of interest.

Only days into the new initiative, the department has already had its first successful identification of a suspect wanted for stealing a bicycle in the 600 block of Jeremy Court. On Wednesday, police contacted a 25-year-old Redlands man and forwarded misdemeanor theft charges to the District Attorney for review after a Facebook user identified the man in the photo to police. The bike has not been recovered.
