A. To Customer. Nonemergency notifications from the district to a customer will normally be given in writing and either mailed or delivered to the street address described in the application for service.

Emergency notifications for small service areas including schools, hospitals, health care centers, day care centers, convalescent homes and other critical facilities will be accomplished by door-to-door contact, email, phone calls and door hangers using available domestic water, water service and water quality personnel and the billing information available to the district from the customer’s application form. Notification in the affected service area(s) will be completed within 24 hours of being directed by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).
Emergency notifications for large service areas including schools, hospitals, health care centers, day care centers, convalescent homes and other critical facilities will be performed through electronic communication. District resources personnel will conduct a press conference where a notice by CDPH will be furnished to the news media.

Notification in the affected service area(s) will be completed within 24 hours of being directed by the CDPH.
A map of the affected service area will be on display at the press conference and distributed to the media and to special telephone answering personnel who accept calls and answer questions from consumers 24 hours a day. In addition, the map of the affected service area will be posted on the district’s website.
