Old San Diego Bay power plant to be imploded

Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA, Calif. (AP) - An obsolete and unsightly power plant on the shore of San Diego Bay will be imploded this weekend.

The South Bay Power Plant has been a landmark on the city of Chula Vista's bayfront since the late 1950s, and steps toward demolishing it began more than a decade ago.

Conditions permitting, the implosion will take place at 7 a.m. Saturday.

The Port of San Diego has invited the public to view the collapse from designated safe areas.

The plant site encompasses 150 acres of land and 242 acres of water.
