Santee Engineers Work to Prevent Another Pebble Beach Sinkhole
Fixing problems before they begin- Santee is working to make sure the ground stays under your feet.
The city decided in 2010 that engineers would inspect 6.75 miles of the city's storm drains and fix points of deterioration, starting with the most crucial areas. Over the next five years, $5 million is allotted to be spent on this project, but the money is not set aside, meaning funding could be an issue.
Five of the top priority drains have been repaired, including the one on Pebble Beach. Repairs to the Rancho Fanita drain should be done in a matter of weeks, and 10 other drains are being worked on currently, according to the Santee Review. The very worst of the drains have already been dealt with.
