Possible Public Safety Power Shutoff this week

PG&E has announced a possible Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event to begin as soon as Wednesday morning that will impact the Bay Area, including parts of our service area. Over the past few months, Contra Costa Water District (CCWD) has been preparing for this possibility and taking steps to ensure water service to customers is maintained during a PSPS event. CCWD is adjusting operations to top off reservoirs serving customers and deploying generators to critical pump stations that may lose power. For customers, we do not anticipate impacts to water service, but we do encourage you to minimize outdoor water use during the event and double check your irrigation system when PG&E service is restored. More information from the County on the PSPS event and emergency preparedness is available at: https://www.contracosta.ca.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=2013
