Metropolitan Water District of Southern California in conjunction with Foothill Municipal Water District will have a shutdown of its imported water to Crescenta Valley Water District and other local agencies from Feb. 21 to Feb. 28.
"The District does not anticipate any water supply problems during the shutdown due to current demand, local ground water capacity and the District’s emergency connection with Glendale Water and Power," according to a news release.
CVWD along with the other Foothill water agencies in the La Crescenta, La Canada, and Altadena areas will be in a Red or Critical Water Alert condition during the shutdown period to ensure ample local supplies for indoor water use and emergencies.
No outdoor irrigation will be permitted during that time period and residents are encouraged to conserve indoor water use.
Authorities announced that residents should refrain from hand-washing vehicles, filling swimming pools or spas.
CVWD will be working with Caltrans, schools, and the local parks to turn off their irrigation systems during this period.
The District will use the Nixle network system to update the Community on any water supply conditions.
MWD will also have water tips and updates at www.bewaterwise.com.
