Cal Water’s Redwood Valley District is putting the finishing touches on the installation of a new emergency generator at its water pump station in Santa Rosa. The new generator will improve water supply reliability and enhance firefighting capabilities during emergencies by providing backup power in the event of a power outage.
Next week crews will test the new generator once per week for four weeks, for approximately 30 minutes each time. Following this initial testing, generator testing will lessen to once per month for one hour to ensure it continues to perform as expected. All testing will occur during daytime business hours and is not expected to impact customers.
“Our team is committed to being a good neighbor and preserving the peacefulness of the neighborhood as we enhance the supply reliability of the water system,” said Local Manager Darin McCosker. “Protecting our customers’ health and safety is our highest priority, and the new emergency generator will ensure our customers have water and peace of mind for many years to come.”
