The Las Virgenes Municipal Water District (LVMWD) has notified the City of Calabasas that the water supply from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California will be greatly reduced between April 6 and 14, 2010 in order to maintain the supply line that serves the region. As a result, the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District will supply customers with water from a storage reservoir in Westlake Village.

“Some customers may notice a slight difference in the taste and scent of their water during this time,” said David Lippman, Director of Facilities and Operations for the District. “We want everyone to be assured their water will continue to meet all state and federal standards and is safe to drink.” Mr. Lippman cited differences in filtration and disinfection methods as reasons some customers may notice a change. He added that the District is fortunate to have the reservoir which serves as a backup supply for supply interruptions, emergencies and it helps meet peak summer demands for water.

Las Virgenes MWD serves some 65,000 people in the cities of Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, Westlake Village and adjacent unincorporated areas of Los Angeles county.  For more information, please visit
