Pasadena Temporary Water Shortage–Outdoor Watering Banned–February 21-28, 2013
REPAIRS = TEMPORARY WATER SHORTAGE
Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) will stop all water deliveries to Pasadena and neighboring cities in order to perform vital system repairs and upgrades at its Eagle Rock Tower in Eagle Rock and at its Weymouth Treatment Plant in LaVerne. For eight days, Feb. 21-28, Pasadena must rely solely on its groundwater and reserves and water conservation. This means a total ban on outdoor watering, with very few exceptions, until pipeline deliveries resume. The ban is necessary to insure enough water for drinking, showering and washing.
More information on the watering ban, pointers for how to prepare, and daily updates during the shutdown can be found at www.pwpweb.com/shutdown, on Facebook (Pasadena Water and Power) and on Twitter (@PWPNews). Additional information will be posted on the City’s homepage, www.cityofpasadena.net and the City’s main Twitter account www.twitter.com/pasadenagov (@
