September is National Preparedness Month, and CRWP wants to help its customers prepare for earthquakes, forest fires or other emergencies that could interrupt the delivery of drinking water. The CRWP wants to help you prepare for such emergencies by making water storage containers easily available.

Earthquakes are high on the list of natural disasters that can interrupt our drinking water. Research published in the Oregon Resilience Plan indicates there is a high probability the Willamette Valley will experience a very large earthquake within the next 50 years; it’s a not a matter of if, but when.

Drinking Water Systems are especially vulnerable to earthquake damage:

Water pipelines are susceptible to rupture during sudden ground movement.

Pipelines are subject to failure where they are connected to structures: intake structures, filtration plants and reservoirs, as well as to homes and businesses.

Reservoirs that do not have seismic upgrades are vulnerable to damage that could make them inoperable.

The CRWP is working with the American Red Cross to raise awareness that emergency preparedness is a shared responsibility.

Starting on August 5th you can pre-order a free 3-gallon BPA-free water container. Storing an emergency supply of water – along with food and other life-sustaining items – is a critical component in any household emergency kit.

“Following a disaster or loss of water supply, clean drinking water may not be available, so it makes sense to store enough water for several days,” says Kim Swan, CRWP Water Resource Manager. “You need a minimum of one gallon of water per person per day for drinking and basic sanitation.”
