Flood-Prevention Pump Installed in Normal Heights Keeping Neighbors Awake

Heavy rains bring along a noise nuisance for residents living in a cul de sac on Pananma Place in Normal Heights.

Neighbors claim the city of San Diego installed a pump to suck water out of a drain whenever it rains because the underground pipe serving the drain has collapsed. While the pump prevents a serious problem, it also creates another one: the sound of the pump’s generator is so loud some residents say they can’t sleep at night.
