In Santa Margarita, 100,000 gallons of drinking water was drained after an employee at the county water storage facility discovered a break in.
The storage facility fence was vandalized,. A lock was cut which provided access to the drinking water supply.
So, that water was drained as a precautionary measure. Officials say, “It is unknown whether perpetrators tampered with the water.”
Anyone with information about the break in is asked to call the sheriff’s office.
