CCWD COVID-19 Response
CCWD drinking water is safe from coronavirus (COVID-19) and available 24/7
We have dedicated employees working 24/7 to deliver safe and reliable water to the families and businesses that we serve.
Your tap water remains safe and unaffected during this outbreak. As the water providers to more than 500,000 people, we take great effort and great pride in delivering a product that exceeds all drinking water standards set by the state and federal governments. For information about water quality, see our Annual Water Quality Report (PDF).
Idle Business Safe Return to Water Service
As some restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic are lifted and businesses reopen, there are actions property managers and business owners need to take when water has been off for an extended period of time. Please reference the following guidance when reopening your business.
Our crews and contractors remain in the field, committed to keeping a reliable supply of high-quality water flowing to our customers. The Bay Area stay home order allows necessary operation, maintenance, and construction of essential infrastructure. The health of our employees and our customers is our top priority. As you see our crews in the street, please adhere to all health guidance and practice social distancing. While it might be tempting to ask about your water service, please protect your health and theirs by calling us at 925-688-8000. Not sure it’s a CCWD employee? Learn how to identify our employees.
