While PG&E and SCE are required to shut power off in some areas, California Water Service also advises residents to limit their water usage during these outages.

According to California Water Service, they are doing everything they can to make sure water services are not interrupted.

"We are working to ensure water service does not become interrupted, as we are utilizing backup power generators at our stations, monitoring water system levels, and mobilizing additional personnel – to keep your water flowing during these outages," said McCusker, manager of Community Affairs, California Water Service.

"We are also asking customers who experience power outages to please minimize water use, in order to help prevent any temporary water service interruptions. We will continue to monitor this situation and will provide important water system updates to you as needed. If you are using your communication channels to share information about the rolling outages, please encourage people to minimize water use during this time to help prevent service interruptions and to ensure as much supply as possible for firefighters in case of emergency."

For more information on the rolling outages, visit PG&E or SCE.
