When an earthquake hits, one of the most important things to have on hand is drinking water. EBMUD expects to have most residential services restored within a month of a major quake. To be prepared for that month, 1 gallon of potable water and 1 gallon of sanitation water per person per day is recommended.
We HIGHLY recommend purchasing water storage items as a Complete
Package as they contain everything needed for a single location, including FDA
Approved food-grade plastic water barrels or totes, wrenches, dispensing
method (spigot or pump), bleach, a bleach dosing syringe, and instructions.
We partner with the Lamorinda CERT organization for these sales. You must
preorder before noon on Thursday, April 27th. In order to correctly route your
