How to plan for a Water Outage:

We understand that water outages could happen without notice. However, we want our community to be prepared and know what to do when these arrive.
Here are some tips to help prepare you for scheduled and unscheduled Water Outages:

  • Make sure you have enough Cleaning Wipes and Hand Sanitizer
  • Fill Bathtubs and sinks with water, as well as buckets, bottles, and pans
  • Save enough water to drink, cook and use on toilets
  • Be less active to keep cool 
  • Do laundry ahead of time
  • Stock up on disposable goods
  • To flush toilets, pour water into the bowl
