Just received an update e-mail regarding the scheduled closure. Looks like only a couple more months left for us. This is just some of the text of the e-mail. More info on their web site, but this looks like the latest update stuff. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/angry.gif" border=0><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/angry.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>San Vicente Reservoir is currently open on its normal summer schedule, Thursdays through Sundays. The city of San Diego, the owner and operator of the reservoir, anticipates that San Vicente Reservoir will be closed to all recreation sometime in August 2008, based on the current water drawdown rate. The reservoir will be closed for six to nine years to ensure public safety during the construction of the San Vicente Dam Raise project and during the refilling of the reservoir. <BR>In preparation for the San Vicente Dam Raise project, the reservoir's water level needs to be significantly lowered to release the pressure on the dam during construction work. The city of San Diego began lowering the water level in April. The reservoir will close to all recreation as soon as the water level drops to a point where the existing boat launch ramp is not safe for use. The water being taken out of San Vicente Reservoir is being used to supply the city of San Diego's normal water use demands. <BR> <BR>The Water Authority and the city of San Diego understand that closing San Vicente Reservoir is a significant loss to recreational users. However, the main purpose of the region's man-made reservoirs is to provide a safe and reliable water supply for residents and businesses. The San Vicente Dam Raise project is critically important for the future water reliability of San Diego County. <BR>For more information about the construction projects at San Vicente or to sign up to be on the project email list, please visit the Water Authority's Emergency Storage Project website. If you have any questions about the projects, please call the toll-free project information line at (877) 426-2010 or email <a href="mailto:ESPinfo@sdcwa.org">ESPinfo@sdcwa.org</a>. <BR> <BR>For recreational information about San Vicente Reservoir or the other San Diego City Lakes, please visit the San Diego City Lakes website.

Yeah, got the e-mail too and didn't like reading it. Can't buy my new truck fast enough so I can get out there for the last few weeks. Someone should organize the water contact sports people &amp; ping the City for an alternative. There's been talk among some boat shops but nothing ever seems to get off the runway.

Glen, <BR> <BR>Ha! Sorry for bringing it up, but I am also pissed about it. Just trying to stir up shiat I guess. SD is going downhill fast as far as I am concerned. Definately going to check out your spot at the river VERY soon. <BR> <BR>BTW - thanks for letting me take care of your baby. After all, it is a "Bu". Very clean. I would pick that up in a heartbeat if I was in the market. Talk to you soon. <BR> <BR>Buzz
