Emergency Status
Jan 07

Water remains off for some homes as testing continues 

If you are adjacent to a fire affected area and have concerns about your water, or if your water smells like gasoline or plastic after completing flushing, please contact your utilities provider to request a test for drinking water at your property.

If your home is located in a severely fire-impacted area, your water may not yet be turned on while sampling and testing continues.

Parts of the water distribution systems that were burned by the fire are sealed off from unaffected areas. We will continue to isolate areas of our systems to prevent contaminants from entering uncontaminated areas of the distribution system. We plan to keep all properties in the fire-impacted areas isolated and without water service until additional recovery efforts are determined.
