Urgent Water Conservation Alert for Northeast Area of Los Angeles Lifted
LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power has lifted an urgent water conservation alert for the communities of Mt. Washington, Hermon, Monterey Hills, Cypress Park, Glassell Park and Montecito Heights. This area had previously been urged to restrict water consumption to essential uses only as water pumping infrastructure that supplies water to these communities had been affected by a power outage today. Power to the pumps has been partially restored and the immediate threat to water supply in this area has passed.
LADWP crews are making temporary repairs to the affected equipment and returning it to regular service. Customers may notice some reduced water pressure but this is temporary and will subside as the infrastructure comes online.
LADWP asks residents in these communities to continue conserving water, where possible, until at least tomorrow.
