Preparation for Extended Power Outages

内容

最坏情况的准备是山谷水及其董事会的优先事项。yabo200PG&E的公共安全电力关闭计划(PSPS计划)在极端天气或野火条件下是新的,但我们一直准备被停电。

PG&E建议客户准备可能持续超过48小时的中断。所有山谷水的关键设施都有内置备用电源和合同,以供燃油交付。

Valley Water provides wholesale treated water to retailers, raw surface water to a select group of customers, and manages local groundwater basins. Groundwater and surface water users rely on their own equipment to access those supplies.

山谷水及其董事会正在寻求未来解决新挑战。yabo200我们继续寻求提高可靠性和弹性的机会。您也可以准备紧急和灾难。圣克拉拉县的应急管理办公室has helpful information for residents.

经常是ked Questions

  1. 如果PG&E在Santa Clara County of Shout Off Powers作为其社区野火安全计划的一部分,我们对我们的供水潜在影响是什么?
    Valley Water has always had contingency plans in place to continue to deliver treated water and make groundwater available to our water retailers in the event of a power outage. Valley Water has built the necessary back-up power resources into its infrastructure. Permanent generators are connected to critical Valley Water facilities, which includes all the drinking water treatment plants, the water quality lab and multiple administration buildings. Valley Water also has several mobile generators of various sizes that can be quickly deployed to the field, where they may be needed. Our generators are also tested and maintained on a regular basis to be ready for service in case of an unplanned outage.
  2. In the event of an extended outage, how many days can Valley Water continue water delivery service using back-up power resources?
    Several factors are involved in determining how long Valley Water can continue treated water delivery service, including time of year and water demand. In the event of the unlikely possibility of a total power loss throughout Santa Clara County, we have enough fuel on-site to run the generators for approximately four to six days. We also have contracts with fuel suppliers that could supplement our needs if necessary to extend our operations using backup power.
  3. 水质会受到影响吗?
    由于延长的停电,我们不会预计对水质的影响。山谷水将继续测试和监控我们处理的水,并确保它符合或超过所有国家和联邦要求和标准。由于优化在发电机上运行的处理过程,味道或气味有略有可能。但是,将设法所有处理的水,以确保所有国家和联邦要求和标准会议。
  4. 将水源进入我们的治疗厂在延长的停电期间发生变化吗?
    Valley Water receives federal water from San Luis Reservoir and state water from the South Bay Aqueduct. The pumping plants providing water to Valley Water from San Luis and the South Bay Aqueduct have no back-up power. Some water from Lake Del Valle could be delivered by the South Bay Aqueduct via gravity, but Valley Water would primarily rely on in-county surface water from Anderson and Calero Reservoirs to provide the raw water to the treatment plants, as available at the time.
  5. 谷水的地下水管理在紧急情况下如何帮助?
    A key mission of Valley Water is ensuring local groundwater supplies are reliable. Groundwater basins in Santa Clara County can store vast amounts of water, much more than all ten surface water reservoirs combined. Because of this, these groundwater basins are the primary reserve that retailers draw upon more heavily during droughts or other emergencies. Our activities to replenish groundwater, deliver treated water, and conserve and recycle water help make sure local groundwater is reliable and available.
  6. 我有一个嗯,我仍然可以在停电期间抽水吗?
    Pumps to extract water from wells typically rely on electricity for power. In those cases, the pump will not work during a power outage unless it is connected to an alternate source of power, like a generator. PG&E has several resources for what to do before, during and after aPublic Safety Power Shutoff, including how to选择合适的发电机和发电机安全提示.
  7. What is Valley Water’s contractual obligation as a wholesaler to provide continuous water supply to our retailers?
    我们的目标是继续提供对待的水,并使我们的水零售商提供地下水在延长的停电时。我们有一个很长一段时间的基础设施和运营能力。然而,如果发生超出我们控制的情况,可能需要谷水来减少或停止交付。
  8. 如果发生扩展的停电,可能会询问您的内容?
    如果在区域应急和供水有限的情况下,如果在区域应急和供水中有限的大规模停电,则谷水将与圣克拉拉县居民和水零售商合作。
