The work was being done on Southwest California Boulevard, Hayden said.

Hayden said this caused water pressure loss to all customers, which he said totaled about 7,500.

Hayden said crews were making repairs and pressures were back up.

Hayden said a district-wide boil water notice will be in effect for 48 hours.
