Major Disasters

In a major disaster (earthquakes, fires, etc.) water is a  critical commodity and tap water service can become interrupted briefly, or for days!  We cannot stop a major disaster, but we can prepare for it!

Our Water District maintains almost 300 miles of pipe and  15 reservoirs during non-emergencies.  Obviously, in a disaster, time and supplies will determine how quickly the entire system can be functional again.  Residents are encouraged to prepare for a water emergency at home and to report any known damage as soon as possible to the Water District.

Your personal preparation, help, and patience will be  greatly appreciated in the event of a major disaster!

“How to Purify Water”

In the event of a “water emergency,” where the flow of tap water is interrupted, you may be instructed to take special precautions and purify the tap water before drinking or cooking with it.  Click here to learn how to do this! – Water For Emergencies
