BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Several residents in Northeast Bakersfield have access to water once again after a closed valve caused a water outage Saturday night.

Cal Water said crews were working on a 10-inch water main leak when they noticed a possible closed valve, causing customers to lose water access from their homes.

When they became aware of the outage, Cal Water began restoring the service.

According to Cal Water, every customer that was affected has water now.
