250,000-plus Moreno Valley Residents, Others Asked to Halt Using Outdoor Water After Pipeline Fails

More than 250,000 customers in Moreno Valley and other communities have been asked to halt outdoor watering until a state-operated pipeline that leaked is fully repaired.

The leak has been stopped, and there is no danger from flooding, said Roxanne Rountree, a spokeswoman for the Eastern Municipal Water District.

But until work is completed, customers in Moreno Valley, Lake Mathews, Orangecrest, Mission Grove, Woodcrest, Air Force Village West, Hillcrest and Lake Hills and on the on March Air Reserve Base were asked to help ensure reserves are not eaten up.

The request was made by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and the Eastern, Western and Temescal Valley water districts.
