Emergency repairs on a major Inland Empire water supply line were progressing as anticipated, and officials expect to restore full service to the Moreno Valley area Sunday evening.

Michelle Underwood, spokeswoman for the Western Municipal Water District, told City News Service no unanticipated problems had been encountered, 15 hours into the shutdown.

Residents had been asked to suspend all outdoor watering, and limit indoor use, in Moreno Valley, Perris and south Riverside through the weekend.

The water emergency developed because the pipeline needs a major, 52-hour emergency repair job on a leaking valve near the Henry J. Mills water treatment plant.

The pipeline delivers supplies to the plant. The unplanned shut-down of the plant began at 2 p.m. Friday, she said.

Repairs were expected to last until 6 p.m. Sunday.

The plant serves both the Eastern and Western Municipal Water Districts and covers the communities of Eagle Valley, El Sobrante, Lake Mathews, Mission Grove, Orangecrest, Woodcrest, as well as parts of March Air Reserve Base and

Mead Valley, Underwood said.

The request to cut back on water use would affect 325,000 people, Underwood said.
