Disaster Response

Emergencies happen unexpectedly, which makes early preparation a key component to recovery. Reliable water supplies are essential to our daily lives.

Though EVWD continuously works to protect public health and safety by strengthening facilities and practicing strategies for a quick recovery, a major disaster can temporarily disrupt water and sewer services. You could experience a variety of hazards ranging from the most severe - a major regional earthquake - to localized landslides, flooding, and wildfires.

EVWD recommends customers take some simple steps to be prepared for an emergency:

  • Store water
  • Build an emergency kit
  • Make a plan
  • Stay informed
