FLOOD UPDATE

The Santa Barbara County Public Health Department issued a closure order on Wednesday for all restaurants, markets, and other food businesses affected by the Boil Water Notice.

Following Tuesday’s powerful storm, a boil water advisory was issued for the communities of Montecito and Summerland and other areas served by the Montecito Water District.

Food facilities that are subject to the Boil Water Notice but have power through a generator or electrical grid may remain open to sell unopened prepackaged foods only, the Public Health Department said. However, these businesses cannot prepare, handle, or serve any open foods that include fresh produce until the Boil Water Notice is lifted.

Businesses that have questions should call the health department’s Environmental Health Services division at 805-681-4900 during business hours, or 805-896-4443 after business hours.

    The west end of Coast village road is on SB water and ok the east end is Montecito.

  4. Hefe says:

    Hopefully some of the businesses will be able to open soon.

    The Honor Bar has trucked in potable water and has a “treatment device” attached to the tank (subject to County Health testing/approving quality) so they may open soon.

    All coast village is in the evac per my friends who live o CVR. Also I was incorrect on water CVR is Montecito water even though the bill comes from SB city. Also from a someone high up in the water dept optimistically the water system will be fixed by April. There are so many breaks that are buried under mud rocks and debris they don’t know where most of the are. The dissemination of information to the public is being controlled very carefully as this is many times worse than is being reported and perceived.

    Stella Mare has been closed since the 8th and were to reopen the 16th which I’m sure won’t happen if you read their website blurb. The thing is even though they are not in any evacuation zone the police will not let anyone through east bound from the East Beach parking lot at Ninos Dr. When I asked them about this they said the maps are all wrong, nobody gets through not even to the cemetery.
