An aging and decrepit pipe that carries solid waste through parkland from the coastal treatment plant to the regional treatment plant will be replaced, despite environmental concerns. The City Council voted 4-1 on Tuesday for the project, which was recommended by the South Orange County Wastewater Authority as the most feasible in terms of funding, longevity and urgency to avoid a catastrophic spill from the deteriorating pipe along Aliso Creek. "Replacing the pipe is the right project," said Betty Burnett, assistant general manager and district counsel for the South Coast Water District, which is one of the four agencies including the city of Laguna that are participating in the project.

A Laguna Beach man is suspected of burglarizing Laguna Niguel homes early Thursday morning. Cameron Bilbrey, 18, allegedly slipped into four homes while the residents were inside, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Department. Due to the high winds that morning, most of the occupants attributed strange noises to the weather, department spokesman Jim Amormino said. It wasn't until some went to check that they noticed signs of a break-in. The sheriff's department received its first call about 4 a.m. from a home in the 21200 block of Rue De Gauguin, Amormino said.
