A hurricane or natural disaster can damage our water and sewer systems, causing outages or making the water unfit to drink. Here are some tips to be prepared:
Have at least a three-day supply of water. One gallon per person per day is a good rule of thumb. Don't forget pets!
Before a storm makes landfall, fill bathtubs with water to use for bathing and washing dishes.
Know how to purify water.
See instructions from the CDC
If you evacuate, turn off the water supply to your home by closing the shut-off valve.
After a Storm
Stay tuned to the media for instructions about water safety and sewer use.
Damage to our water system can impact water quality, so we may issue a
boil water advisory
Widespread power outages may limit our ability to pump sewage, so we may ask customers to limit toilet flushing and other activities that contribute to sewer flows.
Be careful not to stack debris near water meters, fire hydrants, or valves. This can cause damage during debris removal, resulting in water leaks.
