be heard over in the Mission Gorge area too, near Zion. I've also hear
vaguely up in the Miramar area. I contacted a sewer dept guy and have
not had a chance to meet with him and point out the areas. Between
work and other commitments!!! But I'm pretty sure it's coming from
underground pumps. I believe there is an underground pipe that runs
from the water reclamation dept (south Miramar Air base area) and runs
down the 805 to Chula Vista, for watering golf courses, and the like.
This guy says his book of pumps and generator for San Diego is a Big
book, cause I asked him to send me the pump and generator locations
for the area where this GOD AWFUL NOISE is. I guess it's too much
trouble to copy a few pages, but anyway, I'd like to go to his office
and take a look, if I ever have any time! The noise is THAT BAD, that
I'd take up MY Precious time to go do that! But these past 2 weeks
they seem to have revved things up, cause I am IRRITATED and my EARS
DON't LIKE IT! I know it's no good for small bodies, like pets, and
children, if it's affecting my like that!
Anyway, up in this area (near the freeway) it overwhelms freeway
noise, when the traffic is light at night, and can ALSO be heard
OUTSIDE, especially at night, but also sometimes in the day! In fact,
I've heard "ringing" the old water pipes at times! I think that's what
actually got this guy's attention, cause as you know San Diego is in
deep doodoo for their pipe breakage! But I've contacted Donna Frye and
McDaffer both on city council, and gee, they don't seem to know what
it could be! So, anyway, I do think you are on the right track,
pumps/generators, most logically generating from the water dept. I
wonder why SDGE can't spill out some news about it, since these are
most likely running off electricity, since they never, never, never
stop! I'm sick of it, and so are my ears!!!
