Customers in Three Riverside Neighborhoods Being Asked to Limit Water Use Through Sunday During Treatment Plant Shutdown

 Residents of Riverside’s Orangecrest, Woodcrest, and Mission Grove neighborhoods are being asked to avoid outdoor watering and non-essential indoor water use throughout the weekend while a state-operated pipeline undergoes emergency repairs.

Officials from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, Eastern Municipal Water District and Western Municipal Water District made the water-saving plea today as Metropolitan prepared to shut down its Henry J. Mills Treatment Plant in Riverside.

Beginning at 2 p.m. today, the plant will be shut down to allow the California Department of Water Resources to repair a leaking valve along the Santa Ana Valley Pipeline, which delivers Northern California water from the State Water Project to the Mills plant. The shutdown is expected to last through Sunday evening.
