Winter Storm Events

During winter months the Sacramento region often experiences high wind and rain events which can lead to storm-related power outages in our service area.  The District has prepared for electricity loss in our emergency response planning which helps us to keep water flowing to your homes and businesses. This planning includes backup power generation, communication planning, and emergency operator response.

During power outages, there may be some locations in an affected area that might experience water pressure changes but those should be minimal and in some cases may not be noticed. If you do experience lower pressure at your home or business during a power outage, it should be temporary.  Should you need to reach the District for after hour emergencies please call us at (916) 483-2452. 

During business hours, you can contact us at (916) 483-2452.  If you cannot reach us by phone during business hours, please email us at
