Northeast L.A. residents asked to conserve water after power outage *

The DWP is urging residents across Northeast Los Angeles to conserve water after a power outage has interfered with the utility’s water pumping system and may have resulted in reduced water pressure. Customers in Mt. Washington, Hermon, Monterey Hills, Cypress Park, Glassell Park and Montecito Heights are asked to”use water only for drinking and sanitation purposes only,” according to a DWP release. “Water should not be used for washing dishes, laundry and outdoor irrigation.”

* Update at 3:45 p.m.:  Power to water pumps has been partially restored and the “immediate threat to water supply in this area has passed,” said the DWP in a statement. However, the agency asks residents to keep conserving water if at all possible through Friday.

  1. It’s a lot harder to make light of territory issues and the working class, locals or hipsters in the area when the problem effects you, no?! Internet comments (yes even this one) and passive aggressiveness are such a joke., and forever will be.
