On April 2, Governor Newsom signed an executive order restricting water shutoffs to homes and small businesses while the state responds to the COVID-19 pandemic. The order protects consumers who may not be able to pay for their water service from shutoffs and restores water for occupied residences that may have had their water shut off as of March 4, 2020. If your water is shut off during the COVID-19 pandemic or has not been reconnected, report it online.
