Crews turned off the water by 6 a.m. and were working to repair the sinkhole, leaving about 20 to 30 customers temporarily without water, LADWP spokeswoman Carol Tucker said.

Wonder if you would get thrown in jail if you started filling up some buckets.  How many gallons of water does Nestle pump OUT of California?
