Update Concerning San Diego County Water Authority Shutdown
In order to perform emergency aqueduct work, the San Diego County Water Authority will shutdown water supplies for about 10 days. The work is currently scheduled to begin around September 7 and will affect Fallbrook Public Utility District, Rainbow Municipal Water District and a portion of Valley Center Municipal Water District.
Local water agencies are developing strategies to minimize the impacts of this repair work and have created online resource pages for customers.
The Rainbow Municipal Water District is asking customers to “curtail outdoor irrigation to the maximum extent possible” beginning September 7. A map noting limited use and restricted use areas is available online.
The Valley Center Municipal Water District notes the shutdown is tentatively scheduled to begin September 8. The online map indicates in which areas customers should refrain from all outdoor water use.
Questions concerning the shutdown should be directed to local water districts.
