CCWD Makes Preparations for PG&E Power Outages

San Andreas, CA...Calaveras County Water District is doing everything in its power to minimize potential negative impacts to customers as a result of PG&E’s planned implementation of its Public Safety Power Shutoff Program, or PSPSP. In 2018, PG&E rolled out its Community Wildfire Safety Program (CWSP), which included planned power outages under the PSPS program. If extreme fire danger conditions threaten a portion of the electric system serving a community, it may be necessary for PG&E to turn off electricity in the interest of public safety. In spring 2019, PG&E announced that it would. Click here for detailed information from PG&E.




CCWD’s water, wastewater and recycled water systems rely upon uninterrupted electrical power from PG&E in order to ensure safe and reliable operations. PG&E supplies power directly to CCWD’s drinking water and wastewater treatment plants, along with water distribution and sewer collection systems and is critical to the 24/7 operational needs of these facilities.

To ensure reliable water and sewer services for 13,000 water customers and 5,000 sewer customers, the CCWD Board has authorized the purchase and installation of numerous back-up generators at critical sites throughout the County over the past 10 years. While these back-up generators are expected to minimize impacts to customers caused by the PSPS program, there may be situations when service interruptions occur.

CCWD customer or not, it is important all County residents plan and prepare for the implementation of PG&E’s PSPS program this summer. It could occur at any time. Adequate preparation is critically important for residents on wells as extended outages (multiple days) are a reality. CCWD encourages you to have a plan in place to secure standby power generation for your well operation or an alternative source of supply. CCWD urges al County residents to be prepared by visiting www.prepareforpowerdown.com for detailed information.

Preparation for Extended Outages

Have an emergency supply of drinking water available.
During a power outage, minimize water usage to only critical health and safety needs to help CCWD maintain service to its customers and reduce potential backups associated with engineered septic systems (if applicable).
Plan for medical needs such as medications that may require refrigeration or devices that need power.
Identify backup charging methods for phones and keep hard copies of emergency numbers.
Build or restock your emergency kit with flashlights, fresh batteries, first aid supplies, and cash.
Sign up for alerts about Public Safety Power Shutoff events by going to https://prepareforpowerdown.com.

Subscribe to updates on the CCWD website at www.ccwd.org or “like” our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/calaveraswaterdistrict and ensure your contact information on file with us is up to date.
PG&E’s outages will occur in response to localized weather conditions and may not be fully known until the day of the event. CCWD may not have advanced notice of potential interruptions to water and wastewater services. The District urges all customers to be prepared for power shutoffs and possible utility service interruptions and calls for water conservation.

If a PSPS PG&E power outage has the potential to impact services to customers, CCWD will immediately notify customers once information is provided by PG&E.

To help ensure the District can maintain communications regarding this important public safety matter, all CCWD customers are encouraged to verify their contact information is up to date in the District’s customer information system, by emailing CCWD customer service at customerservice@ccwd.org or calling (209) 754-3543.
