The East Bay Municipal Utility Department (EBMUD) is still searching for what caused two water mains to break, which led to two sinkholes in Alameda last week; one on Lincoln Avenue and one on Otis Drive.
On Thursday, Aug. 3, the California First District Court of Appeal ruled in a unanimous opinion that Measure A — a parcel tax designed to help attract and retain high-quality Alameda Unified employees — is legal and valid.
A man was pronounced deceased after he suffered a cardiac arrest while being rescued from the San Francisco Bay near Harbor Bay on Sunday, Aug. 6. The deceased man was one of four men that were on a small vessel Sunday afternoon in the water near the Harbor Bay Ferry Terminal.
On Friday, Aug. 4, a water main break on the 1200 block of Otis Drive caused another sinkhole in Alameda. East Bay MUD was on the scene to make repairs and has temporarily shut off water to 40 customers. Water service is expected to be restored this afternoon at around 2 p.m.
