The Clackamas River Water Providers and the American Red Cross are partnering to cultivate a culture of preparedness in our communities. The ability for our communities to recover quickly from emergencies and disasters begins with us.

Preparing for water outages

In the event of a natural disaster or distribution system failure, water utility customers may experience a prolonged disruption of water service.

While the Red Cross recommends at least a three-day supply of water (one gallon of water per person and pet, per day), larger disasters, like a Cascadia earthquake may require water for 14 days or more. Once your family has used your stored emergency water supply you can disinfect and refill your emergency water storage container.

CRWPwaterbottlePreparing for water outages made easy

Our local partnership is providing three-gallon water bottles to make it easy for households to obtain water storage containers. These BPA-free three-gallon water storage containers have a reusable twist cap. Useful water and electric outage preparation tips are provided on the container.

Pre-order your emergency water supply storage container before September 15, 2016! There is limited budget, so pre-orders will be taken while supplies last. Once your pre-order information has been verified a confirmation e-mail will be sent with details about when and where to pick up your container(s).  Confirmations will be sent out in September 2016.  Recommended 1 bottle per person or pet in the household. Limit four per household.

Clackamas River Water Providers will donate $1 to the American Red Cross for every emergency water supply container distributed through this program. This gift enables the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to and help people recover from disasters big and small.
