From The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel (Dennis Webb):

The city of Rifle on Wednesday barred outdoor water use after discovering a break in the pipe delivering water from the Colorado River to its treatment plant.

Crews found the leak around 4 p.m. and the city imposed the mandatory water restriction until further notice, to maintain flows for in-house use and in the case of fire. The city said in a news release that there is no estimate of when the pipe will be repaired, but it is working diligently on the problem.

It plans to notify residents once repairs have been made via means including the city’s website, the local Channel 10 community television station and on reader boards on Railroad Avenue.
