The Potable water supply is vital to everyday life, health, sanitation, and public well being. Risks to the system are minimized through staff training, facility upgrades, and considering hazard mitigation in construction of new facilities. Sunrise works in cooperation with surrounding agencies to coordinate response to emergencies impacting our communities.
In spite of these efforts, there is no possible way to completely eliminate the possibility of damage to critical facilities during a disaster. Prolonged power outage and severe weather events can also compromise our ability to provide water service to the community. For this reason we strongly urge residents to be prepared and plan in advance for emergency water interruptions.
