Southern California Edison says it could take two- to three-years to build a half million gallon water storage tank on Catalina. The utility company is hoping to get grant money for the project and will know in June. If Edison can’t get grant money, the company will have to speak with local stakeholders—residents, city officials and businesses.

Meanwhile, City Council members expressed concern about Avalon’s current water supply.

Chihuly at the Catalina Island Museum is the first major exhibition presented by the Catalina Island Museum since opening its new building this past summer. It is also the first time the museum has presented the work of a major living artist. The artist, Dale Chihuly, will make a personal appearance during the museum’s Member Preview of Chihuly at the Catalina Island Museum on Saturday, March 25.

Get rid of standing water

In my nearly 20 years of living in Avalon, I’ve only been bitten by a mosquito on a single occasion.  One of the great attractions of our little piece of paradise, in addition to the best climate in the world, is that we have virtually no biting insects.
