Following the flooding and rain from Hurricane Hilary, the District determined that two areas of the MSWD water system experienced low water pressure, according to the news release. Out of an abundance of caution, MSWD, working with the State Water Resources Control Board, Division of Drinking Water, and the Riverside County Health Department, advises residents in these areas to use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking and cooking as a safety precaution.
