 PG&E has announced that if power is disconnected due to their Public Safety Power Shutoff Protocol, portions of the San Juan Water District retail service area may see the effect at 1 am on Wednesday, October 9th with restoration occurring between 48 hours and 5 days from the time of shutoff. The red flag warning will be re-evaluated on Thursday, October 10th at 5 pm. This may change the outage projection. For the latest information on the outage please visit: https://www.pge.com/en_US/safety/emergency-preparedness/natural-disaster/wildfires/public-safety-power-shutoff-faq.page

The District has planned for electricity loss in its emergency operations planning and we are able to keep water flowing to your homes and businesses. There are some locations in the affected service area that may experience water pressure changes but those should be minimal and may not be noticed at all. If you do experience lower or higher pressure at your home or business during the power outage, it should be temporary. Once power is restored, your water pressure should return to pre-outage conditions.  

We appreciate your patience and understanding and willingness to work with the District through this outage.
