Any news about how the renovation of the La Verne treatment plant is going? Will be ban be lifted tomorrow? Has Pasadena saved lots of water?

Bellis, Pasadena has done very well. It took a couple of days for the community to conserve enough water to meet the goal, but everyone came along. As for the Weymouth Water Treatment Plant, the shutdown is extended until 9 p.m. tomorrow (Monday), then all that lovely water will flow freely again.
