Boat launch ramps are temporarily closing at Diamond Valley Lake.The Metropolitan Water District blames drought and supply needs for dropping the Riverside County reservoir's water levels down.

The launch ramps are scheduled to close October 14, but could close earlier if needed.

The Metropolitan general manager says it just goes to show how severe the water situation will be next year.

The lake will still remain open to visitors despite the ramp closures.
