Sierra Madre, CA. - August 6, 2014 – On Monday, August 11, 2014, construction will begin on the replacement of the existing water main in North Mountain Trail Avenue. The existing main was installed in 1928 and has been subject to multiple serious leakage incidents in recent years.
The City of Sierra Madre would like to extend a huge thank you to the Sierra Madre Issei Memorial Foundation and Sierra Madre Volunteer Firefighters Association. Through their generous support the Sierra Madre tradition of Family Movie Fridays continued this summer, providing wholesome, free entertainment to the families of Sierra Madre and surrounding communities.
Many Sierra Madre water customers have worked hard to conserve water and their efforts are much appreciated. All those who have done so are already Water Warriors. By all means thank you, and please keep up the good work!

The City Council action was required under the State regulations.
The following prohibitions are in addition to and separate from the previously adopted 30% water use reduction.
