Water District anticipates no service interruption

The Tehachapi-Cummings County Water District (TCCWD) has closed its office to the public and the district is working with a minimal staff at the office. The March 18 and special meeting on March 25 were conducted by teleconference. District Manager Tom Neisler said the district is increasing the water supply in Jacobsen Reservoir and is accessing more water from district-owned wells.

“We anticipate that service will not be interrupted,” Neisler said. “We are planning for every contingency.”

To minimize interaction, district employees are working in two-man teams and using headsets for communication. They disinfect the trucks frequently. The TCCWD is a water wholesaler that provides water to agricultural, industrial and private customers in the Tehachapi valleys.
