State water leak temporarily shuts off water supply to Santa Maria

A state water line leak over the weekend forced the city of Santa Maria to temporarily draw water from city wells and reservoirs.
The California Department of Water resources repaired the leak at the Las Perillas lift station Monday morning, that's located within the state's coastal branch aqueduct, south of King City off highway five.
Water Resources Manager, Shannon Sweeney says, "This leak was discovered when they brought the aqueduct back online after their normal maintenance and therefore went ahead and planned another small outage in order to make the repairs."
Officials say, residents in Santa Maria may have noticed a slight change in their water over the weekend.
But, we're told that should have cleared up quickly.
