SONORA, CA: Due to extreme winds and fire threat conditions in Northern California, PG&E has issued a Public Safety Power Shutoff Watch which may affect Tuolumne County starting this Sunday, October 25, 2020. If a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event occurs, Tuolumne Utilities District (TUD) urges customers to be prepared for these outages by storing extra water at your home, conserving water and limiting outdoor water use until the power is restored. While TUD anticipates minimal service interruption, an extended power outage could result in reduced water pressure or loss of water in some service areas. Customers who have experienced issues of low water pressure or no water in past power outages can expect the same to occur in this power shutoff event.
For questions specifically related to PG&E’s power outage, go to the PG&E PSPS website for more information. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
