Rare ban on all outdoor watering hits 4 million Southern California residents on Sept. 6
San Fernando resident Adriana Gomez has been doing everything in her power to save her lawn from turning brown while recycling water during the worsening drought in Los Angeles County…. But she grew concerned that her plants could die when she heard that officials at Metropolitan Water District of Southern California were asking San Fernando residents to turn off their sprinklers and stop using hoses for nearly two weeks starting Tuesday, Sept. 6, so the district can repair a break in a major pipeline that supplies water to a large part of Southern California…. Gomez found herself in a situation shared by more than 4 million residents in Los Angeles County who will face a mandatory ban on outdoor watering for 15 days in September while the Metropolitan Water District repairs the crucial pipeline.
