Citizens in Rifle, Colo., were called upon to conserve water late Nov. 19 after a crucial part of the city's outdated and aging water infrastructure was deemed out of commission, according to Matt Sturgeon, Rifle city manager. 

Sturgeon said after the failure of a main component to the city's water treatment plant, the amount of water the plant treated would have to be reduced while structures were being repaired.
