BEVERLY HILLS—The city of Beverly Hills announced on its website that crews from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) are planning repairs to a pipeline that delivers water to Beverly Hills. Water customers across the service area are being asked to conserve water from Monday, November 6 to Wednesday, November 8.
The city will be using water supplies from its existing reservoirs and its own water treatment plant while MWD work is completed.
Over the three days, the city is asking customers to refrain from outdoor watering and conserve water indoors as much as possible.

Water leaks are caused by running toilets. One toilet can run up to 200 gallons an hour. Other common continuous water flow issues are auto fills in pools or fountains, irrigation system issues and/or broken pipes. Many leaks are not visible and can waste up to 5,000 gallons per day, the city of BH reports on its website.
