The San Diego County Water Authority's regional water transportation, treatment, and storage system is fully operational and meeting all member agency demands, despite Thursday's power outage.

Water is continuing to flow into the county and to the region's 24 member retail agencies.  Water in the regional system is safe.  Residents should follow normal water conservation practices and check with their local water provider for any special instructions in their area.  Those who need help finding their local provider can use the member agency search feature on the Water Authority's home page www.sdcwa.org.

The Water Authority is also posting updates on Facebook at www.facebook.com/sandiegocountywaterauthority.
