"The Marin Municipal Water District is asking all customers to conserve water and to have a stored supply for their families during PG&E’s ongoing Public Safety Power Shutoff. The water district is asking all customers not to use water for irrigation or other outdoor uses, and to reduce their indoor water use.
Customers should store at least a three-day emergency supply of water of two gallons per person, per day. Remember to include extra water for those with special needs and for pets. PG&E estimated Wednesday that power shutoffs could last up to six days.
The Marin Municipal Water District has taken precautions to prepare for the PG&E power shutoff and has installed backup generators at water treatment plants to continue to provide water from its reservoirs.
The water district has also prepared a fleet of generators that are being placed at pump stations throughout Marin as needed to keep water tanks full and to ensure service is not impacted. Conserving water during emergencies such as power outages is critical to ease the demand on backup generators and ensure we have an adequate water supply for firefighting, drinking water and other essential needs."
