cutting off the water supply


Explanation:
"mise hors d'eau" opp. of "mise en eau"

In the more general context of your other questions, I am taking this to mean the opposite of "mise en eau" which is the term used to describe the moment when the water supply is made available, and thus your term may mean the opposite.
