EBMUD Alert: Utility prepares for second power shutoff

Dear EBMUD Customer,
We are again preparing for a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS.) PG&E is planning to shut down power to large parts of the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) service area starting on Saturday, October 26. Your neighborhood is included in the affected areas. Please see the map at ebmud.com/psps2019.

As per our emergency protocol, we activated our Emergency Operations Team, topped off our reservoirs and began reconnecting emergency generators and backup pumps at sites that rely on continuous power. EBMUD asks that customers in affected areas reduce water use indoors and turn off outdoor irrigation. This will help conserve water in our local reservoir tanks. EBMUD also recommends customers prepare emergency water supplies: two gallons per person per day, plus pets. More information on how to store emergency water is available on our website at Storing Emergency Water.

EBMUD will make information available as the situation develops. For updates, check ebmud.com/psps2019 and follow EBMUD @ebmud on Twitter, Nextdoor, and Facebook. Visit pge.com for the latest information about the power outage. Report any water emergencies to

EBMUD at 1-866-403-2683.
Thanks for caring about your water use,
Mona Favorite-Hill
East Bay Municipal Utility District

Power safety shutoffs - info from EBMUD

Dear all,

We received the following message from East Bay MUD about water supply during a potential power safety shutoff:

As you may have heard, PG&E has announced plans to conduct a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) in 34 counties including Alameda and Contra Costa counties. The PSPS is expected to begin on Wednesday, October 9, and may last for up to five days, depending on how long it takes to restore power. 

Given the breadth of the outage and the information available to-date, the District has activated its Emergency Operations Team. Information about the potential outage is being reported on the news and PG&E has issued its own press release.

EBMUD has staged generators at critical facilities in preparation for a PSPS event. EBMUD strike teams are mobilizing now to maintain continuous operations during this period. Our customers can use the map of affected areas at www.ebmud.com/psps2019 to determine if they will be impacted by the shutoff. We are asking customers in the affected areas to conserve water by reducing indoor water use and shutting off outdoor irrigation. We will also provide up-to-date information on ebmud.com and follow us @ebmud on Facebook, Twitter, and Nextdoor.
