Public Safety Power Shutoffs Announced as Possible Starting 11/20

PG&E has announced a that a potential Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) may affect Santa Cruz County beginning 11/20/19. 

District customers can learn more about how to prepare for a PSPS here. We encourage you to store a minimum of two gallons of water per person per day, and as always, please be aware of your water usage.

Scotts Valley Water District (SVWD/District) has an action plan should the area lose power. While a PSPS is focused on high fire-threat areas, outages could affect any of the District’s water facilities and may last several hours or multiple days, depending on weather conditions and power restoration efforts.
