Irvine Co. officials also said they don't know if anything really happened.

-- Greg Risling NEWPORT BEACH -- A pool repairman escaped injury Monday afternoon after he accidentally mixed two types of chlorine that produced a violent explosion at a Newport Crest apartment complex. The incident occurred at about 12:30 p.m. at a community pool on the first block of Seascape Drive. The blast reportedly startled several residents who live in the complex. Authorities said the 25-year-old pool cleaner had added liquid chlorine to a dried-up version that had accumulated in a drain basin in the pool's equipment room.

If you start to notice a slight taste difference or smell in your drinking water, there's a reason for it. Mesa Water District officials said their system has temporarily converted from a chloramine disinfection process to chlorine disinfection. The chlorine, according to the district, will help maintain the health and safety of the water distribution system, which services Costa Mesa, portions of Newport Beach and some unincorporated county areas. The short-term change, described by officials as routine and standard practice for the industry, began Tuesday.

June Casagrande NEWPORT BEACH -- A years-long effort to cover the city's reservoir may be sped up as a result of the Sept. 11 attacks. City staff are looking for ways to pay the estimated $4-million cost of covering the Big Canyon Reservoir in Corona del Mar. The process was already underway when the terrorist attacks on New York and the Pentagon prompted City Councilman John Heffernan's concern. "With the Sept. 11 events, I question whether we want to speed the covering of the reservoir along," Heffernan said.

Andrew Edwards After about 11 years, a landslide and a lawsuit, the San Joaquin Reservoir is officially back in business. Officials from the Irvine Ranch Water District, Newport Beach and other cities on Thursday joined homeowners whose houses overlook the basin for a short dedication ceremony, which ended as water gushed into the partially filled basin. The reservoir, which sits in the hills above Bonita Canyon Sports Park, can hold about 1 billion gallons of water when full and will store recycled water that will mostly be used to irrigate landscaping in Newport Coast and parts of Irvine, project engineer Michael Hoolihan said.

June Casagrande NEWPORT BEACH -- City officials say they're cautiously optimistic that federal dollars will come through to help the city buy a cover for Big Canyon Reservoir. For more than a year, city leaders have been working with Rep. Chris Cox to get half of the $5-million cost of the cover from federal funds. The Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and a midge fly larvae infestation earlier this year have ignited a fire under officials' hopes of purchasing what amounts to a huge plastic tarp to cover the open water body -- the source of all the city's water, most of the time.
